This is a novel about a Jewish kid from Tennessee, who moves to D.C. and hangs out with militant vegetarians, manifesto-writing shoplifters, and strippers who write feminist theory. The story is told through journals, letters and zines. It's got everything you could want out of a novel: a chase scene, a sex scene, plus angst-ridden critiques of American society.

"The story is fun and engaging and will ring true to anyone who has ever spent any time debating the ethics of eating honey."
--Jessamyn

"This book does a great job of describing the attitudes of the 1990s DIY punk scene .... Recommended reading for anyone who's ever wanted to fit in, be a punk, or both."
--MSSRT Newsletter
