"And for God's sake, don't let me ever hear you say, 'I can't read fiction. I only have time for the truth.' Fiction is the truth, fool! Ever hear of 'literature'? That means fiction too, stupid." -John Waters
28 full-sized pages of black and white art, fiction from the gutter, truth that will rip out your heart, poetry slippery with body fluids, the apocalypse, working girls, party fouls, and revenge.
The Filth is a collection of short stories, photos, articles, interviews, journals, and art. It’s about keeping true to yourself even when you’re down in the gutter. It’s about being strong, when you feel like the world wants to blow you away. It’s about stardust and gravel, drinking when you’re on medication, falling in love when you know it could be disastrous, jumping off the fucking cliff and hoping that someone will catch you. It’s about getting down and dirty, rough and tumble. It is about going beyond yourself and bringing in things you've always wanted, but have either been to afraid to fathom or simply weren't ready to consider, until RIGHT NOW! It’s being so sure... so sure that you can do anything.
