This week, we are veering out of the mainstream and looking at journalism that broke the rules, pushed boundaries and, in some cases, redefined them.

We explore the work and the legacy of three such innovators: Tom Wolfe, Ghassan Kanafani and Gabriel García Márquez. Their journalism defied convention and categorisation and continues to inspire people to consider new ways of presenting stories.
