Interview with David Shields

A Rumpus interview with David Shields the author of Reality Hunger

"I’m not necessarily against story. I’m trying to change the culture, and so I wrote Reality Hunger. Because we need to write compressed stories that produce a ton of thought rather than elaborate stories that produce none."

Incidentally, I have Reality Hunger loaded on my ITouch. It is a fascinating book. Even when I disagree, I find myself thinking about what has been written.

I like Shield's take on Lyric Essays.
