Was the birth of Christianity midwifed by a group of Greek-speaking Italian mystics/witches and their spiked eucharist, the ritual potion (psychedelic beer) of the original mystery cult that spawned civilization? This 'pagan continuity hypothesis' with a psychedelic twist is now backed up by biochemistry and agrochemistry and tons of historical research, exposing our forgotten history.

This is some of the sharpest and most hilarious writing I've read on any subject. Damon Young shares his unique perspective on the black male experience, exploring the prickliest of topics with brutal insights and embarrassing honesty, yet always finding the humor amid the darkness. Young is my new favorite author.

Underclass wage-workers ricochet through Pink's dark, minimalist stories, negotiating vicissitudes depressing and bleak, depicted in a cascade of sharp, tight one-liners, absurdly humorous and crushing but with Pink's poetic charm and grace.

Diana Cowper plans her own funeral, then ends up strangled in her apartment the same afternoon. Thus begins this ingenious meta-mystery, a twisty labyrinth of whodunits that brilliantly blurs the line between fiction and reality as the author himself is drawn into the plot which he cannot control. Clever, witty, irresistible fun.
