Part dictionary of the outrageous, part chronicle of the manic twists and turns of American life, Atlanta writer Jamie Iredell's "Book of Freaks" (due this fall from Future Tense) is A+ material, the best of its bits spawning raucous laughter and righteous anger read after read after... Check out several of the "freaks" in this issue, part of our mini-broadsheets series, along with Nashville-based Gabe Durham's similarly structured selections from "Fun Camp," a work in progress, on the back side. Keyhole Magazine's new editor, Durham will read as part of the Sept. 10, 2010, installment of the Keyhole/THE2NDHAND coproduction of Brick at Portland Brew in East Nashville.
Available in pdf and easily printed via THE2NDHAND.com/printjump.html, our mini-broadsheets are designed for portability on mobile devices and for print via readers' desktops. Readers, please share with interested parties. Print pages 1 and 2 on the front and back sides, respectively, of 8.5x11-in. paper, read, distributing in mini-stacks or singly in your neighborhoods’ reading-friendly establishments’ bathrooms and other spaces.
