SEX & TRAVEL & VESTIGES OF METALLIC FRAGMENTS Preview

April 7, 2010

Sex & Travel & Vestiges Of Metallic Fragments cover

Sex & Travel & Vestiges of Metallic Fragments is an anthology of essays probing and deconstructing modern and historical concerns, from Katrina to Antietam to Hollywood to Irwindale; be it luscious low-rent lap dancers or land speed record losers; reactionary rock stars or genocidal Confederate Generals; Death Valley meth-heads or Japanese drifters; Teutonic milfs in swimsuits or Ashcroft informants; anarchic adrenaline-addled urban bicyclists or Scientologists; from Mark E. Smith and Merle Haggard to Kathie Lee Gifford, Courtney Love and the chick from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Cole Coonce’s collection is of the zeitgeist and the cosmological constant. This is literary journalism for the fast, the inquisitive and the appalled.
