A conversation about dissolving form and genre borders with David Shields on The Marketplace of Ideas this Thursday

shieldsThis week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to David Shields, professor of English at the University of Washington and author of fiction, nonfiction and various hybrids thereof about sports, autobiography, celebrity and death. His new book, Reality Hunger: A Manifesto, uses collage writing to challenge preconceived ideas about form and genre in art, especially as they pertain to literature. Shields advocates disregarding these hardened constraints, a move which will allow art to use more of and become more like life itself.

The Marketplace of Ideas airs every Thursday, five minutes after noon.
