Author(s): Joey Comeau
This collects Joey Comeau's Lockpick Pornography and its previously unpublished follow-up, We All Got It Coming into one volume for the first time. The first is a genderqueer adventure story and the second is about a young couple dealing with the aftermath of an act of violence. Both explore the prejudice and the ramifications of violence with a slightly unhinged humour and unexpected tenderness. From kidnapping the son of a 'family values' politician in Lockpick Pornography to the violent confrontation of We All Got It Coming, these are characters that fight back.
"In a lot of ways I see "Lockpick "as a sister text to Nelly Arcan's amazing "Exit"." --August C. Bourre, "Vestige.org"
