More Info

"New deluxe hardcover edition of this Re/Search interview classic; limited to only 500 made and not available through traditional book distribution venues. Originally published in 1987. 8 1/2 x 11", 240 pp. "A prank is a 'trick, a mischievous act, a ludicrous act.' Although not regarded as poetic or artistic acts, pranks constitute an art form and genre in themselves. Here pranksters such as Timothy Leary, Abbie Hoffman, Monte Cazazza, Jello Biafra, Earth First!, Joe Coleman, Karen Finley, John Waters and Henry Rollins (and more) challenge the sovereign authority of words, images and behavioral convention. This iconoclastic compendium will dazzle and delight all lovers of humor, satire and irony." Also features interviews with: Mark Pauline, Boyd Rice, Ed Hardy, Paul Krassner, John Giorno, Richard Meltzer, Jeffrey Vallance, Paul Mavrides, John Cale, Frank Discussion, Bruno Richard, Mal Sharpe, Bob Zoell, Jerry Casale, John Trubee, Harry Kipper and more."
