It first surfaced in the gripes of GIs during World War II and was captured early on by the typewriter of a young Norman Mailer. Within a generation it had become a basic notion of our everyday moral life, replacing older reproaches like lout and heel with a single inclusive category––a staple of country outlaw songs, Neil Simon plays, and Woody Allen movies. Feminists made it their stock rebuke for male insensitivity, the est movement used it for those who didn’t “get it,” and Dirty Harry applied it evenhandedly to both his officious superiors and the punks he manhandled. The asshole has become a focus of collective fascination for us, just as the phony was for Holden Caulfield and the cad was for Anthony Trollope. From Donald Trump to Ann Coulter, from Mel Gibson to Anthony Weiner, from the reality TV prima donnas to the internet trolls and flamers, assholism has become the characteristic form of modern incivility, which implicitly expresses our deepest values about class, relationships, authenticity, and fairness. We have conflicting attitudes about the A-word––when a presidential candidate unwittingly uttered it on a live mic in 2000, it confirmed to some that he was a man of the people and to others that he was a boor. But considering how much the word does for us, and to us, it hasn’t gotten nearly the attention it deserves––at least until now.

The marriage revolution is at hand--it's going on right now, led by a new generation of married women who crave independence and adventure just as much as they crave commitment. With her fifteen years of experience at top women's magazines, Mandi Norwood hosts the perfect girls' night out, revealing married women's most intimate confessions from more than one hundred in-depth interviews. Sometimes hilarious, often tender, and always empowering, this smart, sexy, candid guide offers from-the-heart, savvy, and practical advice about every aspect of modern marriage from power, controlling money, and omigod-the-mother-in-law, to brazen behavior in bed.It's something entirely different-sexier, more independent and definitely more complicated. The balance of power has not just shifted, it's off its axis entirely. Mandi Norwood has tapped into the new beast that is modern marriage to deliver straight talk about what really happens: at the dinner table, over the checkbook and in the bedroom. In over one hundred interviews with these new-fashioned wives-hitched chicks-Norwood learned not just what women in marriages today want but how they get it. She found an energetic, adventurous generation whose intimate confessions add up to a hilarious and very candid night out with the girls. "High-voltage advice right out of Pandora's Box."-Lauren Stover, author of THE BOMBSHELL MANUAL OF STYLE "As soon as he slips the ring on your finger, find this book and read it cover to cover. It's the must-have-how-to manual for marriage."-Lucy Danziger, editor-in-chief, Self

Fiction. From the same metafictional universe as the films Best in Show and This is Spinal Tap, WALKING MAN documents the life and times of Brian Walker, publisher of the zine "Walking Man." Through a fateful encounter between his foot and a yuppie's BMW, Brian becomes the most famous zine publisher in America and an ardent defender of pedestrian rights. Meanwhile, he must juggle the ambitions of his sexy actress girlfriend with his own soaring celebrity. Written in the tradition of the scandalous tell-all biography, WALKING MAN satirizes so-called "alternative" culture while it fondly recollects the 80s and 90s zine scene. "I loved this book from its first page. WALKING MAN tells an extremely funny story and is spot-on in its critique of pop culture trendiness"--Joseph Weisberg.

The celebrated underground smash that is Cinema Sewer the magazine has been transformed and mutated into CINEMA SEWER: THE BOOK - and following the runaway success of the first volume, we're delighted to be unleashing VOLUME TWO onto a now slightly-less-unsuspecting world! A mind-melting compilation of gonzo writing, illustration and comics about the most insane, sexy, awkward, cheesy, hilarious, upsetting and jaw-dropping movies in the history of film, Cinema Sewer joyously celebrates the sleaziest aspects of the moviegoing experience, whilst delving deep into bizarre cinematic history. Author and comic artist Robin Bougie takes a dive to the bottom of the cesspool of sexploitation, doing so in a distinctive manner that has made him famous amongst a loyal following of cult film fans. If anything, Cinema Sewer acts as Robin's handmade journal, preserving the DIY 'zine aesthetic and carrying it kicking and screaming into the future via articles packed with bizarre trivia and personal insights about the movies your mama always warned you about. Issues 13 to 17 of this celebrated underground smash magazine are exhaustively revised and collated in this second wild volume, together with an additional 90 pages of never-before-seen interviews, rants, comics, hard-to-find classic movie advertising, and graphic illustrations by Bougie and a host of his talented friends from both the comic book and animation industry. Regardless of whether the reader is just discovering the world of classic porn, horror, and exploitation movies, or if they're a long time fan from the days when the drive-ins and grindhouses reigned, they'll find plenty to get excited about, gleefully sloshing around in the filth of the Cinema Sewer!
