Join the Reverend Shields as he looks over the day's paper, tips his barber 50¢ via check, takes a nap, and fiddles with his hearing aids at dinner with the Richters.

From the soundportraits.org interview:
ISAY: Robert Shields types his diary in two perfect columns down sheets of eleven by fourteen inch paper, which he eventually binds into ledgers and stores in huge cartons, seventy-five of which are stacked to the ceiling just outside of his office.

SHIELDS: It's an uninhibited diary. It's tell all, show all. It's spontaneous. I type it as it comes and I don't correct it and I don't edit it.

ISAY: Do you read it?

SHIELDS: No, because if I read it I wouldn't have time to do anything else.
