talk, slideshow & booksigning for "Skinema"
Thursday, July 19 at 7 pm
"Skinema" is a brutally hilarious collection of rants and reminiscences written under the guise of porn reviews from Chris Nieratko, the popular VICE Magazine columnist. The hook is that the pieces hardly ever address the video in question, instead using the video as an excuse to talk about his own life. The pieces ultimately form an anarchic memoir of sex, drugs, failed romantic encounters with pornstars, mean-spirited antics, and the ultimate show-stopper: marriage.
"Skinema" is the first in a series of VICE books inspired by the magazine's content. For better or worse, it's called Jackass Journalism.
