MEDIA REVIEWS

'Whether endorsing literary journalism's canonical status or affirming its merit as a new academic discipline three centuries in the making, The Journalistic Imagination is a major coup for practitioners and scholars of literary journalism everywhere.' - John S. Bak, President, International Association for Literary Journalism Studies

'Too often, journalism is dismissed as a rather flat and functional style. The editors of this book are therefore to be congratulated for opening the door on some of the wealth and diversity of journalistic writing. Drawing on examples from Daniel Defoe to Angela Carter and from the UK, USA and beyond, this book proves that it is essential to take a historical perspective to illustrate the gestation of the range of styles which can be claimed to belong to literary journalism.' - Martin Conboy, Department of Journalism Studies, University of Sheffield, UK

'A timely and useful resource... and is relevant to a range of disciplines besides journalism including English, creative writing and media and cultural studies... clearly an important addition to this wider project - to map out an exciting new field.' - Journalism Studies

"Overall, this interesting collection adds to an ever-richer lode of literary journalism scholarship. it wil acquaint readers with British writers, especially, that they may have overlooked, as well as British academics' concerns and approaches to literary journalism studies." -American Journalism
