Description

Penny-Ante is proud to announce a deluxe reissue of Stewart Homeâ (TM)s classic political satire Defiant Pose, newly introduced by McKenzie Wark with an afterword by Home. Originally published in 1991, this brutal "assault on culture" remains relevant in today's torrid times. Employing pastiche, dÃ(c)tournement and outright plagiarism, Richard Allenâ (TM)s skinhead novels get a perverse makeover, going head to head with Hegel, Hobbes, and the heretical tracts of Abiezer Coppe in a wild ride where no subject is taboo. From fashionable pseudo politics, knucklehead neo-nazis, middle-class masculinity, the art world, and literature's so-called "outlaws," Homeâ (TM)s targets are mercilessly skewered. A contemporary of Kathy Acker born from the punk era, Home has worked outside major cultural institutions for much of his career, and is unafraid to call a spade a spade---an impulse sorely lacking in todayâ (TM)s culture.
