THE NEW JOURNALISM. With an Anthology Edited by Tom Wolfe and E.W. Johnson.

New York: Harper & Row, (1973). First edition. Hardcover. News Journalism is a style of news writing and journalism developed in the 1960s and 1970s that uses literary techniques deemed unconventional at the time. The term was codified with its current meaning by Wolfe in this collection of journalism articles which includes work by himself, Truman Capote, Hunter S Thompson, Norman Mailer, Joan Didion, Terry Southern, Robert Christgau, Gay Talese and others. Most of the pieces here were not published in newspapers, but rather in magazines such as; The Atlantic Monthly, Harper's, CoEvolution Quarterly, Esquire, New York, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and for a short while in the early 1970s, Scanlan's Monthly. A near fine copy of the book bound in blue cloth with gilt decorations and lettering with some foxing to the top edge in a very good plus to near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Item #14448
