Journalists and novelists responded to the pervasive social changes of the 1960s in America with a variety of experiments in nonfiction. Those who have praised the vitality of the new journalism have seen it as a fusion of the journalist's passion for detail and the novelist's moral vision. Hollowell presents a critically sharp portrait of what the new journalists and novelists are doing and why. The author concludes that future writing will further obscure the difference between fact and fiction.

Originally published in 1977.
