I started this book one afternoon and stayed up til 6am eagerly tearing through it. I had to open the bookstore that morning but was like, MUST. KEEP. READING. Must keep laughing, getting lifted, and feeling crazy inspired by this hilarious, provocative, rare, NYC Graffiti-folktale turned revenge story on the criminalization of public art. There are yo mama jokes! There are Mole People! There's a re-imagined history of the city! There's time travel! And in true Cooler Than All The Other Books On Your Shelf fashion, it has an accompanying mixtape by J. Period! WHATEVER.
