Investigative journalist Nick Davies has chosen to discuss Tom Wolfe's The New Journalism, on FiveBooks as one of the top five on his subject - Investigative Journalism, saying that: 

“When this was first published, news writing was written in a very strict, often quite staid style. New Journalism used a range of literary techniques commonplace in fiction, for example the use of dialogue or first-hand narrative. At that time they were virtually unheard of in news writing. Tom Wolfe wrote an essay laying out this new type of writing at the beginning of his anthology, and the writing he included in the book embodied the style of the movement.  You have to do a huge amount of research to be able to justify writing like this. It puts great emphasis on truthfulness.”
