Literary Nonfiction. Edited by Ron Kolm, Carol Wierzbicki, Jim Feast, Yuko Otomo, Steve Dalachinsky, and Shalom Neuman. Another mammoth compilation from Downtown New York's "drinking group with a writing problem," the previous perpetrators of THE WORST BOOK I EVER READ, CRIMES OF THE BEATS, and Help Yourself!, among other innumerable assaults on decency and good taste. Now they finally turn themselves to their most likely subject matter ever (even if it's frequently more a matter of fantasy and theory than of deviant practice). Contributors include Jonathan Lethem, Samuel Delany, Penny Arcade, Peter Lamborn Wilson, Bob Holman, Chavisa Woods, Amy Ouzoonian, Tsaurah Litzky, Gerard Melanga, Jordan Zinovich, Jennifer Blowdryer, Susan Scutti, and scores more. Includes a color Fusion Art centerfold edited by Shalom Neuman, as well as 32 pages in color.
