Publisher Comments:

Nonfiction. Popular Culture. For mature audiences! 320 pages of alkali-dust-storm-infused advice and wit RE: sex, drugs, survival, performance art and social anarchy. Reading this book is the next best thing to actually attending Burning Man, and for those who have attended, this book is guaranteed to stir up compelling memories. A Burner wrote the below: "Do you all know about Piss Clear, the Burner zine, that was around for 13 years? It's been called 'the Vice Magazine of the playa'--sharp and funny with an alternative view of Black Rock City. Now, RE/Search Publications has published BURNING MAN LIVE, which has the best of all 13 years (1994-2007), including 'Best of Black Rock City,' 'Sex and Drugs,' 'Playa Fashion Do's and Don'ts,' 'You Know You're a Burner When...' 'Borg Wars,' interviews with Larry Harvey (Burning Man cofounder) and Harley DuBois (Director of Community Services), and introductions by Brian Doherty, Adrian Roberts, and Malderor. This book is 320 pages, and HUGE (8.5 by 11 inches) of pure Burning Man history--highly recommended--with really great articles and photos."

Synopsis:

From 1995 to 2007, the alternative newspaper Piss Clear covered the colorful culture of Black Rock City with a cheeky, sarcastic tone that earned the paper its reputation as the “Vice magazine of the playa.” From its start as a sassy festival survival guide, Piss Clear developed into a Burning Man reality check, chock-full of hard-hitting articles, acerbic rants, witty commentaries, and funny lists. Along the way, it documented in real-time the evolution of the Burning Man festival.

Lorien Fletcher, April 30, 2009 (view all comments by Lorien Fletcher)
The collective conundrum that is Burning Man revealed. From articles on "Black Rock Style" to "What's In/What's Out" columns, interviews and corporate ad parodies, the unofficial newspaper of Black Rock City is hereby compiled in all of it's glowing, dusty, glory.

13 years of issues tell the story of the evolution of "that party in the desert each August" and is a must read for playa "virgins" and even jaded old burners will have to stiffle a giggle.

As Adrian repeated in every issue, his publication's title " Piss Clear" comes from the official Burning Man survival advice "drink enough water that you piss clear".
