New From Anxiety Press: American Bullshit: Essays at the Margins
A Thin Slice of Anxiety is pleased to announce the rerelease of our much requested title: American Bullshit: Essays at the Margins
(Featuring a new preface by the author, along with additional essays and bonus material: Understanding Bullshit)
“I’ve always loved killing gods.” — Cody Sexton
Perhaps the present story of modern America can only accurately be told by someone on the margins of society, otherwise who would believe it?
“Sexton begins to pick at a scab covering a recurring wound: the working class is tired, angry, and disenchanted, because the harder we work, the more that capitalism pulls away what is rightfully ours. And he also realizes that without the working class, neither the impoverished nor the billionaires can survive.” — Arly Carmack
“I love the style in which this book is written. It’s a huge fuck you to American exceptionalism.” — Justine Jones
“Sexton most certainly is at war in this piece. He's at war with injustice and institutionalised indifference towards its citizens. In that regard, I can't blame him for writing in such an angry way - because it quite literally affects his, and many others' livelihood.” — James Bergman
“If I were to sum up this book with one sentence it would be this: American Bullshit is a book about the battlefield of class and society that has split most of America into either mindless drones or mindless drones that believe they know it all.” — That Outdoorish Guy
“Cody writes with a fire and anger that reads like hair of the dog to war-torn American hearts.” — Dan Denton
