John Waters said that "Dirty Found is art-filth folk art that proves everybody's sex life is secretly touching." I have to agree, the book exposes the heart of passion with its found notes, photographs and artwork. The real beauty of Dirty Found is the editors' asides (for me, at least). Often making me laugh out loud, these passages are worth the price of the book alone.
Thanks to the Atomic Books staff for picking out my January reading. I enjoyed every book, and was exposed to several books I would never have picked up on my own. This month, however, I chose my own titles, and Michael Chabon's detective novella, The Final Solution is my next book.
