The authors address such ongoing concerns as the conflict between narrative flair and accurate reporting, the legacy of New Journalism, the need for reporters to question their politicalassumptions, the limitations of participatory journalism, and the temptation to substitute 'truthiness' for hard, challenging fact. Second read embodies the diversity and dynamism of contemporary nonfiction while offering fresh perspectives on works by Norman Mailer, Tom Wolfe, Rachel Carson, and Gabriel Garcâia Mâarquez, among others. It also highlights pivotal moments and movements in journalism as well as the innovations of award-winning writers"--Back cover.
