Stories for Ways and Means


Outlaw Bible of American Art


Alan Kaufman is a critically acclaimed novelist, memoirist, poet and author of the groundbreaking "Outlaw" anthologies. The fourth and latest in the series is The Outlaw Bible of American Art. Documenting movements from the Post-war to the present, it is a revolutionary art world alternative canon of marginalized or famed autodidactic paint-slinging loners who followed their own outrageous, sometimes catastrophic, visions to the heights of fame or the depths of neglect. The Outlaw Bible of American Art is an anthological barbaric yawp that manifestos, essays, interviews and biographies, profiling such artists and moments as Boris Lurie and the NO!art movement, Forrest Bess, Ana Mendieta, Ed Clark, Sue Coe, Joe Coleman, Clayton Patterson, The Guerrilla Art Action Group, David Wojnarowitz, and Jose 'Cochise' Quiles.

You Can't Win (reissue)


You Can’t Win, the beloved memoir of real lowdown Americana by criminal hobo Jack Black, was first published in 1926, then reprinted in 1988 by Adam Parfrey’s Amok Press, featuring an introduction by William S. Burroughs.

After its Amok Press edition went out of print, You Can’t Win found popularity once again with the AK Press edition.

Feral House’s new version takes this classic American narrative much further, including two remarkable nonfiction articles by Jack Black written for Harper’s Magazine in the 1920s. Extraordinary illustrations by Joe Coleman and new biographical revelations by Donald Kennison round out the new edition.

One on One


Exhibition catalogue from One on One exhibition at KW Institute.

"Alone in the space with the art, one-on-one with a work that was made for the single individual, in a direct and inescapable interaction—intimate and confrontational. The exhibition ONE ON ONE enables the artists to directly address the singular viewer. Individual, self-contained spaces that are specially conceived for the new works and only accessible for one visitor at a time occupy the whole exhibition space of KW."
