Coming off the breakthrough success of Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs
and Killing Yourself to Live
, bestselling pop culture guru Chuck Klosterman assembles his best work previously unavailable in book form--including the ground-breaking 1996 piece about his chicken McNuggets experiment, his uncensored profile of Britney Spears, and a previously unpublished short story--all recontextualized in Chuck's unique voice with new intros, outros, segues, and masterful footnotes. Chuck Klosterman IV
consists of three parts:
Things That Are True--Profiles and trend stories: Britney Spears, Radiohead, Billy Joel, Metallica, Val Kilmer, Bono, Wilco, the White Stripes, Steve Nash, Morrissey, Robert Plant--all with new introductions and footnotes.
Things That Might Be True--Opinions and theories on everything from monogamy to pirates to robots to super people to guilt, and (of course) Advancement--all with new hypothetical questions and footnotes.
Something That Isn't True At All--This is old fiction. There's a new introduction, but no footnotes. Well, there's a footnote in the introduction, but none in the story.
