Overview


Fiction. Gay and Lesbian studies. We're more than fortunate to have a revised version published of Tom Woolley's TOILET. Amped up with two new stories, TOILET is far from some nostalgic I [heart] the Queer 90s. The narrator in "Fuckoff.com" writes that, "I look at shock as armor in a life that is essentially one brutal offensive strike." Originally published in 1998, those words ring even truer in today's era of Bush II, Iraq II, and 9-11. Woolley's stories break through that state of shock. They are revitalizing rather than numbing. TOILET is an electro-paddle jolt to jump-start our current times. It's a punch to the gut, an insistent kiss, a shot in the arm to wake up, breathe deeply, and be inspired. Inspired to fight for the world you want.

What People are saying about this

Scott Heim
"Both cheery and cantankerous, the stories and rantings of Toilet are linked by a battery-acid tone and a smart, atomic energy. Tom Woolley is a wholly engaging original, and injects his humor with equal parts horror and sad, eerie nostalgia."
Dennis Cooper
"Tom Wooley�s Toilet smacks of brilliance. His sinuous, newsy, mega-refined yet weirdly aggressive voice gave me an incredible rush."
Kathy Acker
"Tom Woolley is the kitchen god of bathroom sex. Toilet is filled with the liquid writing of human fluids."
