"a fish, a barrel, and a smoking gun"
for 2 September 1999. Updated every WEEKDAY.


It was while carving a bong-shaped hollow into the pages of our Norton Anthology of World Literature that we hit on the idea for Suck's Special Issue about the world of books. You, our literate readers, are bound to enjoy the infinite adaptability of All the World's a Rave, our Elizabethan groat's worth of wit. For a more contemporary feel, Judy Blume's rejection letters offer pubescent titillation at affordable prices. Looking for Self-help? What could be more helpful than our guide to Self-destruction Books? And if all this book talk's got you itching to heft the inky feather yourself, cut the pages of Suck's guide for Writers. And remember, book spelled backward is koob.
