Spotlight on Nickel Hole Press


Here is a spotlight we just created for Nickel Hole Press at Lulu, the POD site we use. Books by David McLean & me, Jennifer Chesler, are available there and at Amazon etc.

The books deal with various taboo subjects, poverty, mental illness, prostitution, child abuse, and so forth. This makes them both a little sad and hugely comical. The books also direct criticism at the patriarchal nature of modern society and the policing of thought by the fascist psychiatric establishment, the psychologizing of the subject created to tame the unruly bodies of desire, as one sees in the writings of Foucault, Lyotard and Deleuze, with or without Guattari.

Buy these books at your own peril. Maybe the smack babies are laughing, maybe they're crying. What difference does it make? They are an assemblage, they do what they do.
