Arts & Letters Live: Chuck Klosterman
Chuck Klosterman’s recent book But What If We’re Wrong: Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past speculates on the likelihood that many universally accepted cultural and scientific beliefs will someday seem absurd. The answers to his straightforward questions are interwoven with Klosterman’s iconic humor and nontraditional analysis and include insights from a variety of creative thinkers—George Saunders, David Byrne, Jonathan Lethem, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, among others.
Klosterman will also discuss his forthcoming book, Chuck Klosterman X: A Highly Specific, Defiantly Incomplete History of the Early 21st Century, which is composed of articles and essays from the past decade, including keystone pieces about Breaking Bad, Taylor Swift, Tom Brady, and many more cultural figures. He is the bestselling author of seven nonfiction books including the cult classic Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs.
