Who's to Say What's Obscene?
Politics, Culture and Comedy in America Today
published by City Lights Books
Fans of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Onion will appreciate this timely collection of satirical essays by counterculture icon Paul Krassner. With irreverence and an often X-rated wit, Krassner explores contemporary comedy, and obscenity in politics and culture from "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" banners to scenes cut out of recent movies, including Borat.
Praise for Paul Krassner:
"He is an expert at ferreting out hypocrisy and absurdism from the more solemn crannies of American culture."
"To classify Krassner as a social rebel is far too cute. He's a nut, a raving, unconfined nut."
