Reality Hunger is not a book. It looks like a book—it has pages, a front and back cover, blurbs, etc.—but it's not. Reality Hunger is a documentary. A calendar for a 582-day year. A book of proverbs. A spiderweb. A mess of paper scraps and glue. It's a guidebook to reading, writing, watching, stealing, remembering, imagining, and dying. You will experience a shutdown of mental faculties while reading this book, a nearly full-scale wipe of beliefs of conventions. The blank screen. Then, the motor starts whirring and things come back into focus, not quite the same as they were before. If you write, read, watch, think, or otherwise exist, you owe to yourself to read this book.
