David
Shields
writer

“A triumphantly humane book . . . Shields is our elusive, humorous ironist, something like a 21st century Socrates . . . He’s a master stylist—and has been for a long time . . . The collection can stand as a textbook for contemporary creative nonfiction . . . All good writers make us feel less alone. But Shields makes us feel better. He takes some of the bad of our everyday life and our culture and the whole inescapable mess of being human and sends it back to us as good.”
—Clancy Martin, The New York Times Book Review
