Vic's memoir describes not only what it was like to be in bands with people like Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine, Ray Cappo of Youth of Today, and Tom Capone and Alan Cage of Quicksand... it also describes what it was like to search for Krishna while being a Hardcore Straightedge Punk, and what it was like to struggle with the simultaneously wonderful and horrible International Society for Krishna Consciousness, the Hare Krishnas.

Why can't we look away? Whether we admit it or not, we're fascinated by evil. Dark fantasies, morbid curiosities, Schadenfreude: As conventional wisdom has it, these are the symptoms of our wicked side, and we succumb to them at our own peril. But we're still compelled to look whenever we pass a grisly accident on the highway, and there's no slaking our thirst for gory entertainments like horror movies and police procedurals. What makes these spectacles so irresistible? In Everyone Loves a Good Train Wreck, the scholar Eric G. Wilson sets out to discover the source of our attraction to the caustic, drawing on the findings of biologists, sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists, philosophers, theologians, and artists. A professor of English literature and a lifelong student of the macabre, Wilson believes there's something nourishing in darkness. "To repress death is to lose the feeling of life," he writes. "A closeness to death discloses our most fertile energies." His examples are legion, and startling in their diversity. Citing everything from elephant graveyards and Susan Sontag's On Photography to the Tiger Woods sex scandal and Steel Magnolias, Wilson finds heartening truths wherever he confronts death. In Everyone Loves a Good Train Wreck, the perverse is never far from the sublime. The result is a powerful and delightfully provocative defense of what it means to be human—for better and for worse.

David Gere, who came of age as a dance critic at the height of the AIDS epidemic, offers the first book to examine in depth the interplay of AIDS and choreography in the United States, specifically in relation to gay men. The time he writes about is one of extremes. A life-threatening medical syndrome is spreading, its transmission linked to sex. Blame is settling on gay men. What is possible in such a highly charged moment, when art and politics coincide? Gere expands the definition of choreography to analyze not only theatrical dances but also the protests conceived by ACT-UP and the NAMES Project AIDS quilt. These exist on a continuum in which dance, protest, and wrenching emotional expression have become essentially indistinguishable. Gere offers a portrait of gay male choreographers struggling to cope with AIDS and its meanings.

As parents on Long Island in the 1980s Victor and Linda DiCara were typical; their son was not. Follow their struggles as young Vic sets out on a spiritual quest that takes him through Straightedge and Hardcore punk music, Hare Krishna conversion and close encounters with death in India. You will feel their pain as the family unit unravels. You will share their triumph when their journey in this life converges in joy. You will believe in Love. Vic DiCara (aka Vraja Kishor) has written about this same journey from his perspective in his book titled Train Wrecks & Transcendence. This is a unique opportunity to experience a compelling story from both sides.
