1 - 2 weeks availability


Following on from the first volume published in 2012, this new volume significantly expands the scope of the study of literary journalism both geographically and thematically. Chapters explore literary journalism not only in the United Kingdom, the United States and India - but also in countries not covered in the first volume such as Australia, France, Brazil and Portugal, while its central themes help lead the study of literary journalism into previously unchartered territory. More focus is placed on the origins of literary journalism, with chapters exploring the previously ignored journalism of writers such as Myles na gCopaleen, Marguerite Duras, Mohatma Gandhi, Leigh Hunt, D. H. Lawrence, Mary McCarthy and Evelyn Waugh. Critical overviews of African American literary journalism in the 1950s and of literary journalism in Brazil from 1870 to the present day are also provided, and a section asks whether there is a specific women's voice in literary journalism.
