An anthology of over 15 years of Dan Raphael's magazine NRG. If you want to understand what's happening on the edges of literary, and visualature work then this is the place to begin. One gets a sense of both the "avant garde" and Raphael's editorial vision evolving from one wonderfully open perspective to another. The work leaps and sings hungry for new experience, hungry for some other that defies ordinary syntax, sensibility and logic. After a while a kind of lunatic joy emerges, implying there may be some small hope for the species after all. Three large tabloid sections of excellent artistry.--Jake Berry
