The Stiffest of the Corpse brings together the best of the radical journal of books and ideas that galvanized the tepid literary world of the 1980s. Talk, erudition and savagery join here for a truly international assault on a mass hypnosis and image manipulation. This collection should further fuel the controversies that are the life blood of the Corpse.
