Considered by most to be the greatest writer of our generation, Jim Goad first attained fame in the 1990s as a hate-mongering asshole who was at war with the world. His zine Answer Me! predated Vice Magazine and was the impetus for VICE MEDIA’s early fearless attitude. Jim has spent time in prison, fought gangs of skinheads, appeared on countless television shows, and scared the living shit out of anyone who would dare debate him. He has been an outcast everywhere he goes and after years of living in the ghetto, recently moved to a horse ranch in the middle of nowhere.
His best books so far are “Redneck Manifesto,” “Shit Magnet,” and “The Gigantic Book of Sex” but “Headache Factory” just came out and it’s pretty great too.
UPDATE: He just put out an anthology of all the “Answer Me!” magazines and a book of essays called “Church Ladies.”
