LIFE AND LIMB: SKATEBOARDERS WRITE FROM THE DEEP END
Justin Hocking - Jeffrey Knutson
[Skateboard - Literature]
A collection of writing about the art, science, and raw lust for motion that epitomize the culture of skateboarding, with fiction and essays infused with the energy, drive, and unruliness of the sport. The pieces often feature subjects far removed from skateboarding itself - from eating an entire tree on a ten thousand dollar dare, to monkeywrenching a McDonalds, to accidentally setting fire to cemeteries. Yet in unexpected and often humorous ways, they express aesthetics common to skateboarders everywhere.
