"'It's about a race war and it happens in Florida. And the Jewish people sit in trees. And the black people are run by M.C. Hammer. And the whites are run by Vanilla Ice. I wanted to write the Great American Choose Your Own Adventure novel.' -- Harmony Korine, addressing a national television audience, 10/17/97. Back in print from Harmony Korine, A Crack-Up at the Race Riots was originally published by Mainstreet/Doubleday in 1998. Korine's first novel presents fragments of a portrait in multimedia: print, photographs, drawings, news clippings, handwriting, a poem, attempted diagrams, clip art -- but mostly text, including hard-luck stories, off-and-on-color jokes, scriptscraps, found letters, free rhymes, drug flashbacks and other missing scenes, exploring the world of show-biz with fingers prying in the cracks and feet set lightly in the black humours of the real ol' world. A Crack-Up at the Race Riots also includes some other semi/attempted/quasi lists/scripts, a few letters from Tupac and a set of eleven suicide notes with room included for your signature. So that's the book in a nutshell. I don't know, maybe you had to be there. But it's back in print, so be there now, what the fuck?" Soft cover, 172 pages. List price: $18.95.
