HardCore Mother

By Maxon Crumb

By exclusive arrangement with publisher CityZen Books, WordPlay is authorized to offer two editions of Maxon Crumb's extraordinary book, HardCore Mother. This is Maxon's first novel, graced with nine original illustrations and a cover painting by him.

HardCore Mother is a brutal, not unrealistic plunge into the dark side of abusive family life - psychological and sexual. Maxon's unique writing style is incisive, imaginative and searingly truthful all at once; coupled with his powerful, evocative illustrations, Maxon's imagery will linger in the reader's mind for a long, long time.

6 3/4" x 8 3/4", 120 pages, illustrated with full color cover (paperback) or dust wrapper (hardcover).
