Reality TV has taken over the networks, and YouTube and Facebook dominate the Web. David Shields
argues that our culture is obsessed with “reality” because we experience hardly any in our real lives. In Reality Hunger: A Manifesto,
he explores the bending of form and genre and the blur of fiction and reality.
Event: David Shields will be part of a panel discussion, titled "Nonfiction Under Oath" with Wayne Koestenbaum, Brenda Wineapple, and John D’Agata
