Forty years after Tom Wolfe, Hunter S. Thompson, and Gay Talese launched th e New Journalism movement, Robert S. Boynton sits down with nineteen practi tioners of what he calls the New New Journalism to discuss their methods, w ritings and careers. The New New Journalists are first and foremost brilliant reporters who imme rse themselves completely in their subjects. Jon Krakauer accompanies a mou ntaineering expedition to Everest. Ted Conover works for nearly a year as a prison guard. Susan Orlean follows orchid fanciers to reveal an obsessive subculture few knew existed. Adrian Nicole LeBlanc spends nearly a decade r eporting on a family in the South Bronx. And like their muckraking early tw entieth-century precursors, they are drawn to the most pressing issues of t he day: Alex Kotlowitz, Leon Dash, and William Finnegan to race and class; Ron Rosenbaum to the problem of evil; Michael Lewis to boom-and-bust econom ies; Richard Ben Cramer to the nitty gritty of politics. How do they do it? In these interviews, they reveal the techniques and inspirations behind th eir acclaimed works, from their felt-tip pens, tape recorders, long car rid es, and assumed identities; to their intimate understanding of the way a tr uly great story unfolds. Interviews with: Gay Talese Jane Kramer Calvin Trillin Richard Ben Cramer Ted Conover Alex Kotlowitz Richard Preston William Langewiesche Eric Schlosser Leon Dash William Finnegan Jonathan Harr Jon Krakauer Adrian Nicole LeBlanc Michael Lewis Susan Orlean Ron Rosenbaum Lawrence Weschler Lawrence Wright.
