Title: An Exploration of the Methods of Narration in Three Novelistic Histories
Authors: Matsuda, Charlene
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: In the past five years three non-fiction works of both distincĀ­ tion and fame have presented a challenge to critics who may think interms of genres. I refer to Truman Capote's In Cold Blood (1965), Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (1968), and Norman Maller's The Armies of the Night (1968). Not quite histories and certainly not novels, they possess characteristics of both. They deal with actual people engaged in real events--or so we are led to believe. Yet they may be read almost as if novels, for they lean heavily on techniques usually more common to the novel than to a history.
