DON’T HIDE THE MADNESS: William S. Burroughs in Conversation with Allen Ginsberg

edited by Steven Taylor

Don’t Hide the Madness

“A tangible, tender, and totally engaging tour de force, and balm for the dystopic time we’re caught in.” —Anne Waldman, feminist, activist, poet, Fast-Talking Woman

“William Burroughs was a seer, a visionary who was always “now” whether in Underground Comix or Punk Rock. From Post-War America, he saw the Ugly Spirit multiplying in its own image, an endless soul killing sickness breaking the dawn’s ozone and settling upon the deep state in IIlumanati conspiracies snuffing citizens who fall for the Lie. . . . It’s all here, in this futuristic compendium.” —Charles Plymell, author, Last Of The Moccasins / Apocalypse Rose

Barry Miles, author, Call Me Burroughs and Hippie

Burroughs. Ginsberg. A never-before-published four-day conversation about poetry, literary influences, shamanism, punk, and peyote.

In DON’T HIDE THE MADNESS, the fathers of the Beat movement converse about deeply intimate and personal history while gathered at Burroughs’ house in Lawrence, Kansas. The conversation includes discussion of David Cronenberg’s film adaptation of Burroughs’ classic novel Naked Lunch; shamanism, including a detailed description of the shamanic exorcism of the demon Burroughs believes forced him to kill his common-law wife in 1951; literary associates, influences, techniques, and insights; punk rock’s contributions to counterculture lore; and more.

With the current political landscape mirroring many aspects of the early Beat period, DON’T HIDE THE MADNESS is particularly timely. Interest in both authors’ work is on the rise. Many consider these legendary icons’ perspectives to particularly prophetic.. READ MORE

Set in rural Tennessee, QUIVER, by LAMBDA Award-winning author Julia Watts, is a brilliant YA novel that focuses on the unlikely friendship between two teens from opposite sides of the culture wars. 

Libby is the oldest child of six, going on seven, in a family that adheres to the “quiverfull” lifestyle: strict evangelical Christians who believe that they should have as many children as God allows because children are like arrows in the quiver of “God’s righteous warriors.” Meanwhile, her new neighbor, Zo is a gender fluid teen whose feminist, socialist, vegetarian family recently relocated from the city in search of a less stressful life.

Zo and hir family are as far to the left ideologically as Libby’s family is to the right, and yet Libby and Zo, who are the same age, feel a connection that leads them to friendship—a friendship that seems doomed from the start because of their families’ differences. READ MORE

S. Eliot. Shakespeare had his kings and princes. Georges chose royalty of the infamous variety: Valerie Solanas, author of The SCUM Manifesto, who famously shot Andy Warhol. Arthur Cravan—nephew of Oscar Wilde, wild child pugilist and poet—whose legendary antics preceded and influenced the Dada movement. Jack the Ripper as sculpted through the words of T. S.

A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art

edited by Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges

“Though people expect Dada to be silly, and sometimes it is here, it is also often political and usually poignant. . . It’s quite a smorgasbord for those who are sick and tired of it.”—Portland Book Review

ORDER YOUR COPY DIRECT FROM THREE ROOMS PRESS TODAY!

The art movement known as “Dada” began in response to the horrors of World War I as a artistic rejection of logic, reason, and aesthetics of capitalist society. The movement has continued since 1915 in various disguises—Beat, Pop, Punk—and it continues today, as evidenced in Three Rooms Press’ ongoing MAINTENANT contemporary dada journal series.

The new issue, MAINTENANT 12: A JOURNAL OF CONTEMPORARY DADA WRITING AND ART (978-1941110652, 200 pages, Three Rooms Press, June 5, 2018, $19.95), features work that explores the theme “We Are All A ‘Like.'” With the rise in social media use—and abuse—the concept of “like” has reached whole new levels. There’s the idea of an individual’s reaction to events, people, images, etc. as a reduction to “Like” or “Dislike” without need for deeper consideration. Then there is the status factor: that something which is “Liked” by the largest number of people is of value. The concept, while simple, has innumerable ways of looking at it. READ MORE

15 Stories of Conspiracy Noir

The Obama Inheritance
edited by Gary Phillips

“It’s a commonplace these days to say that real life has become so unpredictable that it outstrips anything anyone could dream up in fiction. … But that was before I read The Obama Inheritance, a collection of 15 stories so sly, fresh and Bizarro World witty, they reaffirm the resiliency of the artistic imagination.”–NPR Fresh Air

“Conspiracy theories about Obama spun out to their wackiest sci-fi conclusions … Resistance takes many forms, particularly in the current political climate. Few methods of protest are as cheerfully strange and purposefully bizarre as THE OBAMA INHERITANCE.” —The Washington Post

“Truth may be stranger than fiction, but why should the conspiracists have all the fun of creating fake narratives?” –Clarence Page, The Chicago Tribune

“Fifteen authors known for genre writing, many of color, take right wing tales and transform them into their own righteous pulp. … Who thought being militant could be this fun?” —The Hard Word

“Seven New Books That Will Make You Happy You Can Read. Writers take on the racist backlash against President Barack Obama in genres as diverse as spy thriller, noir mysteries and science fiction.” —Newsweek

“High-octane creativity at work. . . . Some of these stories are laugh-out-loud funny, while others are immensely disturbing simply because you know that somewhere, someone actually believes this ridiculousness for real. That’s a humbling and horrifying thought, even as your funny bone and your common sense are entertained.” —Manhattan Book Review

“Pulp fiction for the post-Obama era.” —Booklist

“The stories are adrift with white supremacists, secret locations, strange conflicts, and subtle aliens.” —Publishers Weekly

“A mashup of genre fiction . . . imagines the consequences of white supremacist politics on American society.” —Kirkus Reviews

Dick, these tales contain vigilante First Ladies, Supreme Court judges who can clone themselves, gear-popping robots of doom, and races of ancient lizard people revealing their true master plan–all mashed up in the blender of fake news bots, climate change hoaxes, and outlandish spins of bizarro conspiracy theories.

THE GREENFATHER is the hilarious debut novel from Emmy-nominated comedy writer, John S. Marshall. A shrewd satire for our times, THE GREENFATHER strikes the heart of current issues of dispute between environmentally aware, organic, green supporters and classic, conservative scofflaws of the crime family genre – all with hysterical results. Loosely based on Mario Puzo’s runaway hit The Godfather, THE GREENFATHER showcases Marshall’s comic dialogue, honed from his years as a writer for late night television. In the grand tradition of classic mob comedy, like Analyze This and Analyze That. THE GREENFATHER is packed with larger than life goons, right-hand men, Feds, and green-fanatics.

When individual beliefs, motivations, and emotions are increasingly guided by online echo-chambers, lies become truths across the entire political spectrum. From an artistic perspective this presents a unique challenge, and the work in MAINTENANT 11 shows artists unraveling lies, offering “alternative” lies, and often offering multiple perspectives of a single situation to show how reality has multiple levels of truth.READ MORE

Exile on Bridge Street
by Eamon Loingsigh

“A century following the first and until now last great novel of the Brooklyn waterfront, Ernest Poole’s The Harbor, Eamon Loingsigh offers this gripping tale, soaked in the Irish immigrant dockworker experience and laden with real life legends from a vanished world.” ——James T. Fisher, author of On the Irish Waterfront

“In Exile on Bridge Street, Eamon Loingsigh recreates the forgotten world of Irish immigrant New York with a combination of accuracy and drama found only in the best historical fiction.” —Tyler Anbinder, professor of history, George Washington University; author, Five Points

“On the surface, Loingsigh’s book mines Brooklyn’s gory and glorious Irish past.  But it is also the quintessential read for 21st century Brooklyn.” —Irish Central 

“Loingsigh has an urgent story to tell. And he tells it well . . . Loingsigh’s great strength is his unsentimental take on the immigrant experience which—despite the rancor of today’s debate—often acquires a sepia tone when it is discussed in the past tense. EXILE ON BRIDGE STREET should be required reading for those who rail about how today’s immigrants ‘refuse to assimilate.'” —Brooklyn Rail

ORDER NOW!

In 1916, teenage Irish immigrant Liam Garrity struggles to survive on his own in Brooklyn, while his family back in Ireland faces reprisals during the violence of the Easter Rising. With taut writing by a master of historical fiction, EXILE ON BRIDGE STREET relates Liam’s compelling personal story against a background of NYC’s brawling streets, Brooklyn Irish waterfront gangs, an influenza epidemic, the rest of Italian organized crime, and the start of American involvement in World War I. EXILE is part two of the Auld Irishtown trilogy, yet it can be read as a standalone book as well. READ MORE

BAD: The Autobiography
of James Carr

“For those interested in prison reform, James Carr’s autobiography, BAD is a must read. His life is a testimony to the need to make fundamental changes in our system of prisons. We all will benefit if changes are made that stress education, rehabilitation and employment opportunities instead of just incarceration. Reading Carr’s autobiography forces us to think about just that.” — Jim Beall, California State Senator

“An inside look at late fifties/early sixties inner city LA street gangs . . . Learn about Carr’s lifelong friendship with Soledad Brother and prison reform leader George Jackson . . . A view inside Soledad and San Quentin that is neither romanticized nor sensationalized. . . . amazing and insightful.” Razorcake

BAD: The Autobiography of James Carr, is the harrowingly brutal and unapologetic story of the notorious African-American career criminal who went straight out of Compton to a reformatory after burning down his school at the age of 9. Originally released in 1972, BAD remains a harsh indictment of the American penal system and a primer for the seeds of institutionalized racism in this country. BAD goes where no other book has ever gone before and so did James Carr. After years in and out of prison (mostly in) Carr wound up bunking with George Jackson (Soledad Brother) in Folsom Prison where they fought their way to a position of strength along the radical stream of the 1960s.
