Notes This is Hersey’s best-known work. An American journalist, he travelled to Hiroshima just months after the blast to collect stories of six survivors whose accounts he narrates in this work of New Journalism. First published in full in the New Yorker, the issue sold out in hours and was rushed into a second printing. Radio stations quickly began airing readings of the article. Time magazine later called Hersey's account of the bombing "the most celebrated piece of journalism to come out of World War II."
