David Shields

PENELOPE BASS
7:30 pm., Thursday December 12 | Free.
Powell's City of Books
1005 W Burnside St.
 
David Shields has authored 15 books that could be called creative nonfiction but mostly just defy classification, including Reality Hunger, The Thing About Life Is That One Day You’ll Be Dead and the newly released Salinger. In his other new book released this year, How Literature Saved My Life, Shields describes precisely that (how writing provided an outlet for his anxieties) in a book that is both cultural critique and confessional autobiography.
