Description: We live in a culture of casual certitude. This has always been the case, no matter how often that certainty has failed. Though no generation believes theres nothing left to learn, every generation unconsciously assumes that what has already been defined and accepted is (probably) pretty close to how reality will be viewed in perpetuity. And then, of course, time passes. Ideas shift. Opinions invert. What once seemed reasonable eventually becomes absurd, replaced by modern perspectives that feel even more irrefutable and secureuntil, of course, they dont. But What If Were Wrong? visualizes the contemporary world as it will appear to those who'll perceive it as the distant past. Chuck Klosterman asks questions that are profound in their simplicity: How certain are we about our understanding of gravity? How certain are we about our understanding of time? What will be the defining memory of rock music, five hundred years from today? How seriously should we view the content of our dreams? How seriously should we view the content of television? Are all sports destined for extinction? Is it possible that the greatest artist of our era is currently unknown (orweirder stillwidely known, but entirely disrespected)? Is it possible that we overrate democracy? And perhaps most disturbing, is it possible that weve reached the end of knowledge? Kinetically slingshotting through a broad spectrum of objective and subjective problems, But What If Were Wrong? is built on interviews with a variety of creative thinkersGeorge Saunders, David Byrne, Jonathan Lethem, Kathryn Schulz, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Greene, Junot Daz, Amanda Petrusich, Ryan Adams, Nick Bostrom, Dan Carlin, and Richard Linklater, among othersinterwoven with the type of high-wire humor and nontraditional analysis only Klosterman would dare to attempt. Its a seemingly impossible achievement: a book about the things we cannot know, explained as if we did. Its about how we live now, once now has become then.
