We?re more than fortunate to have a revised version published of Tom Woolley's Toilet. Amped up with two new stories (?Piss Bottle? and ?Citizen of Chaos?), Toilet is far from some nostalgic I [heart] the Queer 90s. The narrator in ?F***off.com? writes that, ?I look at shock as armor in a life that is essentially one brutal offensive strike.? Originally published in 1998, those words ring even truer in today's era of Bush II, Iraq II, and 9-11. Woolley's stories break through that state of shock. They are revitalizing rather than numbing. Toilet is an electro-paddle jolt to jump-start our current times. It's a punch to the gut, an insistent kiss, a shot in the arm to wake up, breathe deeply, and be inspired. Inspired to fight for the world you want. Contains a new Foreword by D. Travers Scott.
"Tom Wolley is the kitchen god of bathroom sex. Toilet is filled the liquid writing of human fluids." - Kathy Acker "Toilet smacks of brilliance. His sinuous, newsy, mega-refined yet weirdly aggressive voice gave me an incredible rush." - Dennis Cooper "Both cheery and cantankerous, the stories and rantings of toilet are linked by s battery-acid tone and a smart atomic energy. Tom Wolley is a wholly engaging original, and injects his humour with equal parts horror and sad, eerie nostalgia." - Scott Heim"
