This is a great collection of stories from the different 'alternative' newspapers. When I lived in the USA, I devoured these newspapers as much as I could.

I think the editor made a lot of really good choices on what to include.

What an inspiring collection of journalism. Reading this book makes me want to run away and write for the alternative press.
