What came to be labelled «new journalism» in the sixties or
«non-fiction novel» in recent years has expanded the margins of
the American novel in a way that deserves critical attention.
Leaving aside some of its original claims and generic pretentions
—formulated by Tom Wolfe and overenthusiastically reexamined
by others— this critical survey explores the common field shared
by fiction and literary reportage and tries to bridge the gap opened
between them with the coming of the new journalism.
