Description

Printed on pink papers, Reverend Jen’s Reverend Jen’s Really Cool Neighborhood is a travel guide for the poor, deviant and bored that takes readers on a whirlwind tour through the Lower East Side and treats them to the cheapest Budweiser, the greasiest pizza and the fanciest porcelain unicorn heads in the meighborhood. Filled with personal anecdotes of hellish roommates, loneliness and delusions of fame, the book is peppered with delightful illustrations and sultry photos, and is both educational and entertaining.

Flip the book over and you’ll find a bonus – Les Misrahi, an epic musical puppet show that tells the story of Jen Valjean, an ex-convict who has just been freed after serving three years for stealing a glue stick from Kinkos. Jen Valjean is visited by a chorus of wise rats who tell her of an ancient oracle that predicts she will lead the Downtrodden and Tired in a revolution against greedy landlords and real estate developers. Filled with catchy songs like “Dogs are Nice” and “My Roommate is Frozen into a Block of Ice,” this one is sure to inspire sing-alongs!

From Printed Matter’s Emerging Artists Publication Series.
