Poppin' Fresh declares martial law; Che Guevara loses his good looks and throws the entire U.S. Left into disarray; Zombie terrorist anchor babies invade the Pentagon. You'll read all this and more in Snidelines: Talking Trash to Power, a startling collection of personal essays and political satire that offers a perverse moral clarity to an increasingly amoral world. Ace reporter Susie Day brings us fast-breaking faux news; pens heartrendingly squalid lesbian grand opera; and dispenses an array of helpful hints, from how to avoid indefinite detention at Guantánamo, to what to do if you happen to fall in love with a political prisoner. Taking on a combustible mash-up of horrors brought to us by our ever-watchful-corporate-feel-good-war-mongering benefactors, Snidelines is an existentialist survival manual that actually makes it fun to fear the unknown.

""It's precisely because Susie Day is writing from the barricades that these caustic fables and topsy-turvy news items are so hilariously, debilitatingly funny. There's no ironic distance here, but a lucid clarity that exposes the ludicrous roots of business as usual."—Alison Bechdel
