Fight Scenes by Greg Bottoms

Book Description

In an intricately linked series of poetic, short tales set in a 1983 suburb, Greg Bottoms portrays his life as one of two "at-risk" boys as they attempt to learn how to be--and what it means to be--men. By turns funny, disquieting, and moving, Fight Scenes takes an unsparing look at juvenile disaffection and the dark side of white, working-class masculinity. By narrating his experiences with childhood buddy Mark, Bottoms shows how many of America's young men learn to think about work, sex, weakness, violence, and themselves. In a pared-down, highly readable style that brings to mind the work of Raymond Carver, Sherman Alexie, and Denis Johnson, Bottoms has created a work of literature that shows how even the most accepted forms of "toughness" can have a damaging, disorienting, and finally dehumanizing effect on everyone, especially kids.

Colorful Apocalypse by Greg Bottoms Colorful Apocalypse, Paperback (June 2015)

Looking at the lives and works of some of Finster's contemporaries: the self-taught evangelical artists whose beliefs and neuvres occupy the gray area between madness and Christian ecstasy, this book includes biographical portraits, and a profound meditation on the chaos of despair and the ways in which creativity can help order our lives.
