  • The Bandana Republicby Louis Reyes Rivera; Bruce George

    Soft Skull Press 2008; US$ 16.99

    Urban youth gangs are typically viewed as no more than training grounds for thugs and felons. This breakthrough anthology presents a far different picture, revealing present and former gang members’ and street activists’ artistic impulses, emotional sensitivities, political beliefs, and capacities to assess the social conditions that created them.... more...

  • Apocalypse Jukeboxby Edward Whitelock; David Janssen

    Soft Skull Press 2008; US$ 17.99

    From its indefinite beginnings through its broad commercialization and endless reinterpretation, American rock-and-roll music has been preoccupied with an end-of-the-world mentality that extends through the whole of American popular music. In Apocalypse Jukebox, Edward Whitelock and David Janssen trace these connections through American music genres,... more...

  • Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boysby David Henry Sterry; R. J. Jr. Martin

    Soft Skull Press 2009; US$ 15.99

    The only thing the writers in this book have in common is that they've exchanged sex for money. They're PhDs and dropouts, soccer moms and jailbirds, $2,500-a-night call girls and $10 crack hos, and everything in between. This anthology lends a voice to an underrepresented population that is simultaneously reviled and worshipped. Hos, Hookers, Call... more...

  • Enough About Youby David Shields; Ross McElwee

    Soft Skull Press 2008; US$ 14.99

    What does it mean to construct a self? What does it mean to turn your life into a narrative? What’s gained? What’s lost? What lies inevitably get told? What deeper truths are reached or at least reached for? Enough About You has no answers to these questions, but it frames and asks these questions in a much more overt, honest, precise, and provocative... more...

  • Lost in the Supermarketby Kay Bozich Owens; Lynn Owens

    Soft Skull Press 2008; US$ 17.99

    Historically, a love of cooking has been left to those considered far from cool: suburbanite Betty Crockers toiling over a hot stove. But the new youth-culture sensibility has taken over, merging the axiom You are what you eat” with its updated mantra You are who you listen to.” Lost in the Supermarket yes, named for the 1979 hit by The Clashis a... more...

  • I Wouldn't Start from Hereby Andrew Mueller; Robert Young Pelton

    Soft Skull Press 2009; US$ 16.99

    What is a jaded rock journalist doing dodging landmines to talk to mercenaries and terrorists? And what kind of conversation can a man who prefers hunting for perfect three-minute pop songs and tubes of beer have with devotees of fasting and ferocity? Sarajevo. Jerusalem. Kabul. Belfast. Kosovo. Gaza. Basra. New York City. Every place where recent... more...

  • Dead in Desemboqueby Eddy Arellano; William Schaff; Richard Schuler; Alec Thibodeau

    Soft Skull Press 2008; US$ 15.99

    Inspired by kitschy Mexican "historietas" (pocket-sized comic books), Roberto presents an English-language version featuring his alter-ego, Eddy Arellano. When a dama named Juanita calls him down to Sonora, Eddy crosses the Rio Bravo and never looks back. Soon he's embroiled in a complex, comic drama featuring a memorable gallery of quirky characters.... more...

  • Watching the Doorby Kevin Myers

    Soft Skull Press 2009; US$ 15.99

    Kevin Myers was a young, wide-eyed, and naive outsider thrust into the thick of the conflict in Northern Ireland as it teetered on the brink of civil war. Quickly absorbed into the local community and privy to the secrets of both the Protestant and Catholic paramilitaries, Myers gained a unique perspective into both sides of the sectarian violence.... more...

    Soft Skull Press 2005; US$ 14.99

    A new entry in Soft Skull's ShortLit series, Jane tells the spectral story of the life and death of Maggie Nelson's aunt Jane.

  • How to Be Inappropriateby Daniel Nester

    Soft Skull Press 2009; US$ 14.99

    Dry, offbeat, and mostly profane, this debut collection of humorous nonfiction glorifies all things inappropriate and TMI. A compendia of probing essays, lists, profiles, barstool rants, queries, pedantic footnotes, play scripts, commonplace miscellany, and overly revealing memoir, How to Be Inappropriate adds up to the portrait of an artist who... more...
