About me:"Thoughtful, critical, committed to expounding an openly manifold perspective toward all modern life, these and other releases by Soft Skull endorse a new, enlightened way of looking at society. Harsh politics and inspired fiction aside, in a nation that starves for real reality, Soft Skull Press has solidly grounded, daringly provocative food for the brain." —Willamette Week "One of the most visable and respected alternative houses in the US...like Grove Press in the 1950's and 1960's." —Quill & Quire (Canada) check out our website at www.softskull.com
