Description

In this compelling series of lectures on literary journalism, Professor William McKeen delves into the origins of storytelling, the nature of literary journalism, and the ways in which literary journalism has affected culture and modes of expression. As Professor McKeen takes listeners back to the Second World War and progresses through the history of literary journalism to the present, he introduces such intriguing-and sometimes notorious-writers as John Hersey, Norman Mailer, Gay Talese, Tom Wolfe, and Hunter S. Thompson.
