JJ Wilson's Damnificados wins Gold for Multicultural Fiction

At the 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards

"Damnificados is a great read. Two-headed beasts, biblical floods, dragonflies to the rescue, massacres involving multilingual ghosts, and a trash truck acting as a Trojan horse—magical realism threads through this very human struggle. Wilson introduces archetypes of hope and redemption that are also deeply familiar—true love, vision quests, the hero’s journey, even the possibility of a happy ending. In this sense, the novel can also be read as documentary literature, which illustrates and predicts that social justice will prevail in the end..."—Yang Jing, World Literature Today

That Precious Strand of Jewishness That Challenges Authority on Philosophy Football

 

“Leon Rosselson’s short memoir That Precious Strand of Jewishness That Challenges Authority provides a sense of one such source of this radicalism, an important rejoinder to the current febrile debate over what is, and is not, anti-semitic.  But of course outsiders, radicals can originate from all variety of sources, the English Defence League for a period posed a real challenge to what it was assumed were settled notions of a multicultural and diverse society, fomenting an unapologetic racism, Islamophobia and anti-immigration into a street-fighting weekend army.  Loud and Proud by Hilary Pilkington, is a vital study of the EDL in preparation for any revival of a similar type of movement.—Mark Perryman, Philosophy Football

#Vans Book Club review of Spray Paint the Walls (in Spanish)


“...Spray paint the walls is not only the (indispensable) biography of the band that invented hardcore and that was persecuted by the police (as certain authorities intend to persecute to the present the immigrants in the United States, including Mexican) by its nonconformity and Rage that they translated into riffs and shouts and madrazos that enthused the boring surfers of the Californian, traitorous promises, of the perfect commercials and the films with happy endings and the palm trees and the televised fame; Chick takes advantage of the Black Flag fable to unearth the strong contrasts of California and exert a severe social criticism of its Hollywood mirages that live with the misery and overexploitation of immigrants through a story of accuracy as accurate as a textbook." —Wenceslao Bruciaga, #Vans Book Club

"... cultural renaissance of this period had a far-reaching impact that is still felt today..."

 

"Ultimately, the music business largely returned to its pre-insurgency model of doing business, with more or less rigid musical genres, with pop stars cultivated by record labels and told what to record, with any- thing overtly political once again being treated as a novelty, rarely to be promoted by the record labels. But the cultural renaissance of this period had a far-reaching impact that is still felt today – though often not consciously, for people under the age of 50. If enough people read this book, that impact will become stronger, and better understood."—David Rovics, Socialism and Democracy Journal
