Summary

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.

Not what I expected, but good.

Though I was expecting to hear more about techniques and styles, I really enjoyed what Professor McKeen presented. Bought three of the books he discussed in this lecture as well.
