Search - List of Books by David Shields

David Shields (born July 22, 1956) is an American author of nonfiction, fiction, and works that resist generic classification. His new book, Reality Hunger: A Manifesto (Knopf, 2010), is, according to the publisher, a “rigorous and radical attempt to reframe how we think about ‘truthiness,’ literary license, quotation, and appropriation.” Shields’s previous book, The Thing About Life Is That One Day You’ll Be Dead (Knopf, 2008), a meditation on mortality, was a New York Times bestseller.
