More About Reality Hunger by David Shields
 
 
 
Overview

With this landmark book, David Shields fast-forwards the discussion of the central artistic issues of our time. Who owns ideas? How clear is the distinction between fiction and nonfiction? Has the velocity of digital culture rendered traditional modes obsolete? Exploring these and related questions, Shields orchestrates a chorus of voices, past and present, to reframe debates about the veracity of memoir and the relevance of the novel. He argues that our culture is obsessed with reality, precisely because we experience hardly any, and urgently calls for new forms that embody and convey the fractured nature of contemporary experience.
