David Shields and Caleb Powell continue the debate they started in their new book I Think You're Totally Wrong: A Quarrel (Knopf).

How does a contemporary writer create a work that has the compression, concision and velocity of contemporary life? By opening himself to confrontation. By taking part in a face to face argument.
