Klosterman’s latest debuts 5th on New York Times list
Former BJ reporter Charles John “Chuck” Klosterman’s latest book, “But What If We’re Wrong?: Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past,” opened at No. 5 on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
Chuck cobbles his thoughts onto those of creative thinkers George Saunders, David Byrne, Jonathan Lethem, Kathryn Schulz, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Greene, Junot Díaz, Amanda Petrusich, Ryan Adams, Nick Bostrom, Dan Carlin and Richard Linklater.
We all know, if we’re old enough, that what was “fact” in our younger years have been disproved since. Astronomy, science and medicine are littered with such untruths from decades ago.
Klosterman has been a senior writer at Spin magazine, found his way from North Dakota to the BJ in 1998-2002 and has published about as many books as I have fingers.
