More Description


An anarcho-punker with a wanderlust, Shon spent two years in the Balkans. He found himself feeling at home in the Balkan peninsula just as NATO began bombing it. Upon returning to the US, he found that many who opposed the bombing supported the same nationalist dictatorships which were brutalizing his newfound friends. Attempts to address that situation resulted in "Suffled How It Gush." Fortunately for all of us, he is a keen, and witty observer, deftly combining personal travelogue with acute social and political observation. Quite superb, engaging, and revealing.
