Publisher Comments:

What Kerouac was to the Beat generation, Aaron Cometbus is to the punk scene in Berkeley, California. In this first novel, his slacker kids ponder life's mundane questions with the seriousness of ancient philosophers: how to get by on no money, where to scam free photocopies, and the finer points of food filching. Through a haze of beer and Top Ramen, they engage in endless debates about the nature of punk rock rage.

The tribe of punks and dropouts has never before been so perfectly chronicled as in this oral history made into a written saga. In his autobiographical work, Cometbus offers an eclectic series of connected stories about living on the fringe in Berkeley.

An open, rollicking look at the life of Bay Area punk rockers, anarchists, artists, fuckups, drunks, druggies, and other misfits. Cometbus, a pioneer of the Berkeley, CA, punk and zine scenes, brings freshness and vividness to his story, his characters and the confusing filth they live in.
