Nerve: Literate Smut by Genevieve Field, ed. and Rufus Griscom, ed.

Once upon a time, you had to be rich to start the hottest little lit magazine on the pop culture scene. George Plimpton did it with the Paris Review . A generation later, Granta came along. Today's sizzler is on the web at www.nerve.com; it's Nerve?and it's edgy and unflinching. Nerve, the book, is the first print collection of some of the best essays, stories, and images to appear on the webzine. It introduces us to work by such edge culture icons as William Vollmann, Poppy Brite, Thom Jones, and Rick Moody; to futurist John Perry Barlow and others; and to controversial political mavericks like straight-shooting Joycelyn Elders. Edited by Nerve founders Field and Griscom?mean writers in their own right?this collection is literate and sexually charged: it takes nerve to read Nerve. Do it.
