Opis: Radiant Truths - Jeff Sharlet

Beginning with Walt Whitman singing hymns at a wounded soldier's bedside during the Civil War, this surprising and vivid anthology ranges straight through to the twenty-first century to end with Francine Prose crying tears of complicated joy at the sight of Whitman's words in Zuccotti Park during the brief days of the Occupy movement. The first anthology of its kind, Radiant Truths gathers an exquisite selection of writings by both well-known and forgotten American authors and thinkers, each engaged in the challenges of writing about religion, of documenting "things unseen". Their contributions to the genre of literary journalism - the telling of factual stories using the techniques of fiction and poetry - makes this volume one of the most exciting anthologies of creative nonfiction to have emerged in years. Jeff Sharlet presents an evocative selection of writings that illuminate the evolution of the American genre of documentary prose. Each entry may be savoured separately, but together the works enrich one another, engaging in an implicit and continuing conversation that reaches across time and generations. Among the contributors to this volume: Walt Whitman; Henry David Thoreau; Mark Twain; Meridel Le Sueur; Zora Neale Hurston; Mary McCarthy; James Baldwin; Norman Mailer; Ellen Willis; Anne Fadiman; John Jeremiah Sullivan; Francine Prose; and many others. "Brilliant . . . "Radiant Truths" shines largely because it is something far more personal than a simple 'anthology'./i>--Ted Scheinman "Pacific Standard "
