Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.07.10





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Since the 1984 publication of his debut novel Heroes, Seattle writer David Shields has been moving steadily away from the paradigms (or confines) of traditional fiction and into a broad, catch-all category of composition that attempts to capture the slippery nature of reality in the age of information. In books such as Remote, Enough About You and The Body Politic, Shields’ writing has become increasingly aphoristic and subtitled — which doesn’t mean more fragmented, however — as he blends memoir, criticism and abundant quotation to arrive at something stunningly new and genre busting. Reality Hunger: A Manifesto is perhaps his most explosive and creative work to date, a literary collage comprised largely of other writer’s writings, all strung together by Shields’ ravenous intellectual curiosity and uncommon erudition. Shields will read from Reality Hunger at 7:30pm Friday, Oct. 8, at OSU’s Valley Library in Corvallis.
