Reviews for Reality Hunger: A Manifesto...
"David Shield's radical intellectual manifesto, Reality Hunger, is a rousing call to arms for all artists to reject the laws governing appropriation, obliterate the boundaries between fiction and nonfiction, and give rise to a new modern form." --Vanity Fair
"This is the most provocative, brain re-wiring 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." --Alex Pappademas, GQ
"...I don't think it would be too strong to say that Shield's book will be a sort of bible for the next generation of culture-makers." --David Griffith, Bookslut
