"Absolutely stunning slice of life" This was one of the first books I bought on Lulu, chosen simply because I wanted to see the quality of photographic printing, and I liked the premise of this one. I have since read it from cover to cover, gone back to it several times, and find it inspiring as a publisher and writer. This book offers a peek into a small corner of America that as a New Yorker I probably never would have visited. The stories told here in brilliant portraits and brief bursts of text make one interested in this loose community of misfits, State Fair beauty queens and punk rockers. It is a book that probably wouldn't have been published through old-style channels, and one that so deserved to be.
