Mehso-so

I really enjoyed the unique structure and concept - 618 short passages, some authored by Shields, while others are quotations, bits of interviews or other materials to fit each chapter's theme. Those themes also cover interesting intellectual topics on the fraught border between fiction versus nonfiction. But I kept hearing this implication that traditional fiction is tired and some new experimental fictive nonfiction is superior somehow 👇

Billypar It may not have been intended that way, but there seemed to be this repetition of personal preference posing as argument that I found annoying. I had assumed the title Reality Hunger: A Manifesto was meant to be funny, but there was so little humor in the book itself, unless it was supposed to be a self-deprecating nod at his desire to argue for preferences. Even as a flawed effort, I still found it worth reading and puzzling over. 2w
