The text on this site is from David Shields' Reality Hunger, a book comprised of more than 618 quotes whose sources can be discovered in the Appendix at the back of the book.
Due to the nature of the book's content, and particularly the placement and content of the Appendix, Reality Hunger is ripe for an enhanced remix of its own.
The text on this site diverges from the published text in one significant way: the Appendix of sources has been incorporated into the body of the text. Minor changes have been made to pronouns in the sources to reflect the fact that this is an unofficial site, in no way affiliated with either author or publisher.
