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.

Review quote

Highly persuasive. I can't stop recommending it * The Times * The most provocative, brain-rewiring book of 2010. 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 *
