Reality Hunger - David Shields

I had this copy but the cover disgusted me, looking like a book about festivals - huh.

Then I found this one secondhand, a paperback uncorrected proof...much better.

Random House lawyers insisted on a list of citations, which Shields had not planned for the original form. Most readers, however. will probably relish looking up the sources of all the quotes. It's about plagiarism, 'reality' in fiction, and sampling of all kinds. An essential read.
