Incredibly crisp and clean -- beautiful as new book which has no defect of note and will arrive in brand new mylar cover. A fascinating treatise on literary nonfiction which at the time of Capote's publication of In Cold Blood seemed to be a new genre. The author, however, argues that the marriage of factual reporting and lfiction technique actually goes back to James Agee, and John Hersey, to Truuman Capote, Norman Mailer, Tom Woolfe, Gay Talese and more, all of whom are discussed in the book.174 pages, plus index.
