Like him or loathe him, David Shields looms over Seattle’s literary scene. He’s inspired thousands of arguments about the future of narratives, the death of the novel, and the literary significance of J.D. Salinger’s missing testicle. In their new book, I Think You’re Totally Wrong, Shields and his former student Caleb Powell argue about life, art, and literature. Shields fans will love his provocative statements; Shields haters will enjoy the way Powell rips into his pretentions. Tonight’s event promises to be a mini-reenactment of the conversation that inspired the book.
