ABOUT BUT WHAT IF WE’RE WRONG?

But What If We’re Wrong?: Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past is Chuck Klosterman’s ninth book. It’s both an earnest attempt to speculate on what, and how, our culture might transform over time, and a rational inoculation against the dangers of assumption.

ABOUT CHUCK KLOSTERMAN

Chuck Klosterman is not a detached academic who deconstructs pop culture at arm’s-length with a deadening sterility. He’s a regular guy whose intellectual curiosity is insatiable, infectious, and surprisingly insightful. He is the best-selling author of seven nonfiction books (most notably Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs and I Wear the Black Hat) and two novels (Downtown Owl and The Visible Man).

He has written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, SPIN, Esquire, GQ, The Guardian, The Believer, Billboard, The Onion AV Club, and ESPN. He served as The Ethicist for The New York Times Magazine for three years, where he dispensed uncommon wisdom on moral conundrums, and appeared as himself in the LCD Soundsystem documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits. He also created the web site Grantland with Bill Simmons. He is a native of North Dakota and currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife (Entertainment Weekly TV critic Melissa Maerz).
