Shit Magnet | Jim Goad | Signed
Written entirely while incarcerated, this is Jim Goad's autobiographical rumination on the nature of guilt and scapegoating.
New York Press said:
"Shit Magnet is a relentlessly sad, ugly, hateful, raging, repellent, violent and brutally candid memoir-manifesto. It's as hard to put down as it is to read. Think Celine, or Klaus Kinski's rabid autobiography. Mostly it's about Goad working out a rationale not only for his own violence, but for a generally violent world."
