#1, Summer 1993

315 Park Ave. South Rm. 1611
New York NY, 10010

80 pp., $6.00

A collection of writing spawned at a NYC nightclub reading series. Tough words, with lots of NYC nightclub ambiance--Ecstasy, attitude, drag-queens and living-on-the-edge. As would be expected from the origins, many of these pieces would work well on stage, at high volume. Dramatic black&white layout; no room for gray. Plenty of AIDS references, but (except for some masturbation) not much explicitly safe sex. Self-confidence/promotion, just a bit of that NYC drive to make this (poetry) the Next Big Thing.--luigi
