Radical Lines from a Lit City : (Full Color Version)
Paris has a storied history of religious and political satire from Moliere to Charlie Hebdo. "Radical Lines from a Lit City" continues that noble tradition with a collection of satiric stories and poems written during a year-long residence in the City of Light. Various topics include the elimination of the eighth commandment by the Pope, a visit to President Obama by three Republican ghosts, and the true story of St. Patrick and the snakes. One chapter features witty anecdotes by six American writers currently living in Paris: Boomie Aglietti, David Jaggard, James H. Jewell III, Antonia Alexandra Klimenko, Moe Seager, and David Leo Sirois. In addition, there are twenty-one full color photographs of the city's unique character. There are three versions of the book: full color photographs ($29.79), black and white photographs ($9.99), and the full color Kindle. "Radical Lines from a Lit City" offers a glimpse into twenty-first century Paris amidst a skewering of sacred cows."
