From the Publisher
«This text uses literary journalism as a prism through which to critique journalism past and present, bringing journalism face to face with important critical debates facing not only societies in general but aspiring journalists. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all journalists, consumers of journalism and anybody concerned with the potential of this most varied of cultural products» (Martin Conboy, Professor of Journalism History, Sheffield University)
