Fiction. Holy Lunker Catfish! The Great American eco-novel starring the legendary bottom feeder Old Shithead has just been re-released. In a manner reminiscent of Ed Abbey, a wacky castof monkeywrenching characters battles the Anal General's forces of Industrial Cheese to preserve a metaphoric fish that's larger than usall. A cult-classic of Guerilla Lit and one hell of a fish story!
