THE SELF-ESTEEM HOLOCAUST COMES HOME


it's out.

here it is.

this is the re-release.

six gallery released it a while ago and then it was stopped and now the same press that put out PERSON, Lazy Fascist Press, is re-releasing it.

it has one different play and is more heavily edited.

if you bought the original, i apologize and i am sorry.

but now the pain is over, and we can move on.

it's been almost seven years since the first draft up until now.

it's a weird book.

maybe you will like it.

it's easy to read and has weird shit in it.

it's two hundred pages, and like, so fucking sweet.

there are like, nineteen or so plays/hybrid short stories in the book.

reynard seifert will be putting on one of the plays in san francisco.

i think sean kilpatrick and his lady are going to put one on too.

here is the backcover copy:

"Why are three violent policemen in search of The Greatest Dad in the World?

More importantly, why are two young men at a fast food restaurant talking about freezing bees?

And good god, why are there two young ladies in the backyard during a Halloween party, shaving each others' legs with a piece of a broken jaw bone?

What will become of the old woman who slits her young boyfriend's throat? And why does she give him a calculator for his birthday?

Will anyone survive?

Where will you be when the Self-Esteem Holocaust comes home?"


it seems like a book you might read on a train and then look around at the other people because you feel uncomfortable and upset.

not really sure what i am talking about right now.
