Abstract:

Abstract: This thesis looks at New Journalism writings of Joan Didion, Hunter S. Thompson, and Tom Wolfe, and explores the implications of their 1960s writings set primarily in California. Read together, these texts create a holographic portrait revealing constructions of different senses of normality through a multitude of reactions against normality. Such reactions occur with the subjects of each text and with the ways in which these texts undertake formal deviations from the norms of journalistic practice. Employing literary critical approaches and interrogating the ways in which nonfiction texts can be read as imaginative works, this study aims to demonstrate the implications of multiple nonfiction narratives converging on the same plane of time and place.
