did not like it
Read from March 02 to April 19, 2011

Worth reading for some of the great quotes Shields has chosen, but not for anything Shields himself has written. Self-important tone, unlikeable. I disagree with some basic premises in his argument, for example his idea that the fact Americans like reality shows means something new about narrative. Reality shows are scripted and edited, as an narrative is. Gimmicky.
