Urban Gothic by Bruce Benderson

Distributed by Small Press Distribution
In texts of relentless candor and biting wit, Urban Gothic portrays the warped beauty of our megalopolises, their streetwise underclass, and subcultures of sex. Oppressed but flamboyant, the voices of Bruce Benderson's subterranean worlds become just too intense to be ignored...
Praise for Bruce Benderson's Work
"Crazed, exhilarating reading... Taut, driven, culturally astute, politically cranky and packed with Oscar Wilde-worthy epigrams." – Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times
"What astonishes and intrigues is Benderson's way of recounting, in the sweetest possible voice, things that are considered shocking." – Josyane Savigneau, Le Monde
