Focusing on the neglected journalism of writers more famous for their novels or plays, this new book explores the specific functions of journalism within the public sphere, and celebrate the literary qualities of journalism as a genre.
With journalism establishing itself as a creative genre worthy of academic analysis, and with it being an ever-expanding field, The Journalistic Imagination highlights the relevance of the writers’ work to contemporary journalistic debates.
Key features include:
- an international focus taking in writers from the UK, the USA and France
- essays featuring a range of extremely popular writers (such as Dickens, Orwell, Angela Carter, Truman Capote) and approaches them from distinctly original angles.
With each chapter beginning with a concise biography of the journalist in question to help contextualise the journalists and guide the reader through the essays, and ending with references and suggested further reading, this is certainly a book that any student or teacher of journalism or media studies, will want to add to their reading list.
