This Young Monster, Paperback / softback Book


THIS YOUNG MONSTER is a hallucinatory celebration of artists who raise hell, transform their bodies, anger their elders andshow their audience dark, disturbing things.

What does it mean to be a freak? Why might we be wise to think of the presentas a time of monstrosity? And how does the concept of the monster irradiate our thinking about queerness, disability, childrenand adolescents?

From TWIN PEAKS to Leigh Bowery, Harmony Korine to ALICE IN WONDERLAND, THIS YOUNG MONSTER gets high on a whole range of riotous art as its voice and form shape-shift, all in the name of dealing with the strange wonders of what Nabokov once called 'monsterhood'.
