  • A pesquisa que apresento, de forma reduzida aqui, trata do limite entre fato e ficção em livros-reportagem de dois renomados jornalistas brasileiros, Caco Barcellos e Fernando Morais. O primeiro se dedica ao livro-reportagem-denúncia e trata, essencialmente, de histórias sobre a atuação da polícia e a questão do tráfico de drogas no Brasil. O outro jornalista especializou-se em escrever livros-reportagem-perfil. Para o trabalho, analisei duas grandes reportagens de cada um deles publicadas em livro. Em todas, a presença dos elementos essenciais do Novo Jornalismo estão claramente presentes, o que garante uma leitura envolvente do começo ao fim.
  • The issue which arises in this research is due to the fact that while the news stories in the books studied have very intriguing texts, the narratives in the four news stories employ language strategies that tend more toward literature than journalism. I do not mean to say that the books contain lies. I do not wish to entertain that thought. However, in many instances, the facts described are enhanced with strategies that are more associated with novels, as opposed to journalism.
  • In this last chapter I seek to identify the essential attributes of New Journalism in the narratives of Barcellos and Morais, and apprehend that the non-fiction narratives, proposed by New Journalism, appear to give rise to an invented, illusory, fanciful description of facts.
  • After three years researching this theme – a subject which, by the way, has always been an object of debate in the world of literary journalism – it becomes clear that the narrative in non-fiction novels displays a hybridism between historical, literary and journalistic discourses. In this sense, I seek to determine where this hybrid text belongs.
  • Tom Wolfe used to say that news stories in New Journalism should be read as though they were a novel. In the case of the non-fiction novels that were studied, the opposite occurs: the texts appear to be novels to be read as though they were news stories.
