Okay, not new as such, merely a collection of a decade’s worth of camic opinion pieces for Reason magazine. Any new Peter Bagge book is worth a look, especially one where Bagge gets to vent his cultivated grumpiness on topics “ranging from Stupid War to Stupid Sex and, of course, Stupid Politicians”.
For those of you familiar only with Bagge’s Gen X tales of angry, lost youth in Hate, the realisation that Bagge has developed into an opinionated, curmudgeonly middle aged man may seem as disturbing as seeing your favourite band of your teens back on stage now they’re all 40 somethings. But there’s no need to fear – Bagge’s middle age self displays all the angry, hilarious energy of his younger self, just with more direction and purpose. Definitely one to look forward to.
