Reality Hunger: A Manifesto

Reality Hunger: A Manifesto

David Shields


With this landmark ebook, David Shields fast-forwards the dialogue of the relevant creative problems with our time. Who owns principles? How transparent is the excellence among fiction and nonfiction? Has the rate of electronic tradition rendered conventional modes obsolete? Exploring those and similar questions, Shields orchestrates a refrain of voices, previous and current, to reframe debates in regards to the veracity of memoir and the relevance of the unconventional. He argues that our tradition is captivated with “reality,” accurately simply because we event rarely any, and urgently demands new kinds that embrace and produce the fractured nature of latest experience.
