Submersion Journalism: Reporting in the Radical First Person From Harper's Magazine

by Bill Wasik

With and introduction by Roger D. Hodge; this collection of startling stories from celebrated authors such as William T. Vollmann, Barbara Ehrenreich, Charles Bowden and fresh new voices as Wells Tower, Jake Silverstein, Morgan Meis, and the alike. This book serves as a proclamation in favor of unsanctioned reporting in an age of managed "news" and PR spin. The book is a defense of the radically first-person dispatch, filed from exactly those points of view where a reporter is not supposed to be.
