9780743554299: Chuck Klosterman IV: A Decade of Curious People and Dangerous Ideas

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF SEX, DRUGS AND COCOA PUFFS AND KILLING YOURSELF TO LIVE

CHUCK KLOSTERMAN IV consists of three parts:

THINGS THAT ARE TRUE

Profiles and trend stories: Britney Spears, Val Kilmer, McDonalds, 70's rock band nostalgia cruises -- with new introductions and asides.

THINGS THAT MIGHT BE TRUE

Opinions and theories on everything from monogamy to guilt, and (of course) Advancement -- with new hypothetical questions and asides.

SOMETHING THAT ISN'T TRUE AT ALL

This is new fiction. There's an introduction, but no asides. Well, there's an aside in the introduction, but none in the story.

About the Author:

Chuck Klosterman is the New York Times bestselling author of Eating the Dinosaur; Downtown Owl; Chuck Klosterman IV; Killing Yourself to Live; Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs; and Fargo Rock City, winner of the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award. He has written for GQ, Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Spin, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Believer, A.V. Club, and ESPN.

From AudioFile:

The author reads various articles he's written for "smart" publications that amusingly record his observations of cultural ephemera. A specialist in inconsequence, he writes glibly about the passing scene in clever phrases. This volume includes profiles of celebrities, opinion pieces, and a smattering of short fiction. His vocal skill is less felicitous than his writing. On the positive side, he adopts a light, chatty tone and a brisk pace that nicely complement his text. He does have some flair as a raconteur. But his scratchy voice grates on this reviewer's nerves, as does his sloppy diction and air of in-crowd smugness. Perhaps a younger trend-conscious listener will have more appreciation for Klosterman's virtues and less impatience with his faults.
