In 1946, John Hersey, an employee of The New Yorker magazine, proposed the reality of the bomb that was thrown into Hiroshima for the agenda, and interviewed six coincidental survivors in the area and published the records within the frame of a truth-based narrative form. This work, which may be considered as a product of ‘literary journalism' or a reflection of ‘transmedia' or a ‘cross-media', is a true-based narrative in which six survivors' dramatic lives are constructed and embedded successfully. The study aims to describe and analyze the narrative structures in which the author tries to influence people in Hiroshima book, and the relationship between these structures will be tried to be revealed through narrative analysis, and a certain contribution to the narrative literature is targeted as well.
