The Anthology of American Literature
The Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature, captures eight readings from the critically acclaimed Pollack book of the same name. You\'ll hear Neal explode the cult of first-person author-centric journalism while simultaneously creating a conduit for a broader understanding of contemporary problems such as poverty and race-relations.
Backing him is our ready band, the Pine Valley Cosmonauts featuring the talents of Jon Langford, Kelly Hogan and Sally Timms among others. Together they\'ve turned these written works into an aural barrage of strange field hollers, crusty mountain music, abrasive beat free-form and Afro-Cuban jazz.
With Neal\'s keen sense of irony, you\'ll be sure to enjoy these musings as you start or end your daily grind. Hold up, you say, irony is dead. Well if irony is dead, then Neal Pollack is one scary fucking vampire ready to suck the life out of the entire genre of pointy-headed, smarter than you, literary bullshit that too many people are content to carry around in those little canvas bookbags.
