Description How Literature Saved My Life de David Shields:

Blending confessional criticism and cultural autobiography, David Shields explores the power of literature to make life survivable, maybe even endurable. Evoking his deeply divided personality, his character flaws, his woes, his serious despair, he wants "literature to assuage human loneliness, but nothing can assuage human loneliness. Literature doesn't lie about this--which is what makes it essential." This is a captivating, thought-provoking, utterly original book about the essential acts of reading and writing. David Shields is the author of thirteen previous books, including "Reality Hunger" (named one of the best books of 2010 by more than thirty publications), "The Thing About Life Is That One Day You'll Be Dead" ("New York Times" bestseller), "Black Planet" (National Book Critics Circle Award finalist), and "Remote "(winner of the PEN/Revson Award). He has published essays and stories in numerous periodicals, including "The New York Times Magazine," "Harper's," "Yale Review," "The Village Voice," "Salon," "Slate," "McSweeney's," and "The Believer." His work has been translated into fifteen languages.
