Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Prepare yourself for the best and brightest from Might magazine. These provocative accounts of cultural chaos tackle every tacky and/or annoying issue that has made the 20th century so ripe for the Apocalypse — from the lost diaries of H.R. Haldeman to David Hasselhoff's world tour. Includes:

"The Perverse Blessing of AIDS" by David Foster Wallace

"Are Black People Cooler Than White People?" by Donnell Alexander

"Hey America! There's Gangs Under Your Bed!" by Jess Mowry

"The Future of Indentured Servitude" by R.U. Sirius

"College is for Suckers" by Ted Rall

"Get Out the Youth Vote, Then Get the Hell Out" by Marc Herman

"The T-Shirt: More Problems of Signification in American Low Culture" by Glasgow Phillips

"The Unsavory Rise of Faux-Caesar Salad" by Heidi Pollock

"The Tragic and Untimely Death of Adam Rich" by Christopher Pelham-Fence

"Why I Went Right Wing" by Paula Kramen

And much, much more!

Synopsis:

Before Dave Eggers hit it big with A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and David Foster Wallace redefined the art of writing with such books as Infinite Jest and A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, they were contributing to Might magazine-a small-scale, big-impact publication that specialized in edgy, funny, deceptively wacky commentary on modern culture. Featuring articles ranging from "College is for Suckers" to "All About Iceland," this outstanding compendium will give readers a look at the earlier work of these bestselling writers-and one of the most interesting small magazines of our time.
