Product description

"Reality Hunger" questions every assumption we ever made about art, the novel, journalism, poetry, film, TV, rap, stand-up, graffiti, sampling, plagiarism, writing, and reading. In seeking to tear up the old culture in search of something new and more authentic, it is the most vital book of the new century.

It's a book that feels at least five years ahead of its time and teaches you how to read it as you go GQ Bold, entertaining, contentious. Essential reading for readers and writers Guardian Weird, exciting, incendiary Dazed and Confused
