    Default New from Stumble Press: An Il Ragno Reader, the Boxed Set



    The Stumble Press is honored to present An Il ragno Reader, the Boxed Set, which includes all three Readers that Il Ragno compiled over the years and posted at Original Dissent, the Phora, and Stumble Inn. Together for the first time, the three Readers offer Il Ragno's take on life in this United State as it has unfolded since the dawn of the post 9/11 era. In them, you'll find a wealth of sig material, quotes for all occasions, and an ample supply of what Readers Digest (or was it Art Linkletter?) used to call "the best medicine".

    The first reader, Default Spider Stratagems, contains comments on events that already seem old to a nation of short attention spans, and conversations with Circle of Crust personalities that we scarcely remember now. (Sinclair? Edana/Eddie?) Il Ragno's description of Dwight Gooden's conversation with his mirror is haunting, but you have to remember the whole Gooden experience to appreciate it.

    The second reader, Children's Letters to ZOG, is my favorite. It contains extended essays and parodies that cut through the bullshit of official speak and remind us that life during the second Bush administration really was so awful that it was funny.

    The Third Reader, Mudpuppies and Hottentots, is described by the author as consisting of odds and ends. Someone else may have coined the term "there's no business like Shoa business", but here is where Il Ragno provides us with lyrics to the song.

    The critics rave:

    "Don't read this unless you're securely seated." --Rachel Goldberg, The New York Times

    "...an outrageously warped view of the world." --Izzweiner Rosenbloom, The Forward

    "...the finest book I've ever read about American life and culture." --Hugo Chavez, La Prensa Caracas

    "You need to get Il Ragno." --Muscatel Jefferson, The Detroit Free Press
    This Christmas, give the gift of a link to An Il Ragno Reader, the Boxed Set.

    "I sent a link to Janet Napolitano." --Senator Charles Schumer

    'God', 'immortality of the soul', 'redemption', 'the Beyond', all of them concepts to which I have given no attention and no time, not even as a child—perhaps I was never childish enough for it?—I have absolutely no knowledge of atheism as an outcome of reasoning, still less as an event: with me it is obvious by instinct. I am too inquisitve, too questionable, too high spirited to rest content with a crude answer. God is a crude answer, a piece of indelicacy against us thinkers—fundamentally even a crude prohibition to us: you shall not think!... ~Nietzsche
