BUT WHAT IF WE’RE WRONG? visualizes the contemporary world as it will appear to those who’ll perceive it as the distant past. It’s about how we live now, once ‘now” has become “then.” Built on interviews with a variety of creative thinkers, Klosterman asks profound questions such as: How certain are we about our understanding of gravity? How certain are we about our understanding of time? How seriously should we view the content of our dreams? Is it possible that we’ve reached the end of knowledge?

In I WEAR THE BLACK HAT, Chuck Klosterman questions the modern understanding of villainy. What was so Machiavellian about Machiavelli? Why don’t we see Bernhard Goetz the same way we see Batman? Who is more worthy of our vitriol --- Bill Clinton or Don Henley? What was O.J. Simpson’s second-worst decision? And why is Klosterman still haunted by some kid he knew for one week in 1985?

Austin, Texas therapist Victoria Vick has been contacted by a man who believes his situation is unique. But as he reveals himself to her slowly and cryptically, she becomes convinced that he suffers from a complex set of delusions --- he is a scientist who has been using cloaking technology from an aborted government project to render himself nearly invisible.
