1987

The mustache that I was looking for on a full-grown woman was the mustache that an 11-year-old boy discovers on himself, with his face four inches away from the bathroom mirror, that all of a sudden makes his whole existence seem just on the brink of becoming worthwhile.

Masturbation: The Typing Requirement

Only when I first started reading what other people had written did I begin to realize that possessing the ability to write shouldn’t automatically demand that a person become a writer.

Blah Blah Blah

I suddenly started to worry that the only threat hippies might pose to the dominant culture nowadays was the personal-injury lawsuits they were likely to file from accidental falls due to uneven pavement.

Civilization and Its Malcontents

Mr. Fish

Ready ... Fire ... Aim!

In his latest self-revelatory essay, our resident genius cartoonist tells a tale of triumph over the oppressive forces of consumerism—or at least the security chief at Barnes & Noble. Call it an origin story, as this incident freed the author to fully become the inimitable Mr. Fish.

Phuck Is Not a Four-Letter Word

His name was Sam, no last name, and he wore no pants. He was lying on my little brother’s bed in a filthy orange T-shirt staring up at the ceiling, knees slightly bent, with blue eyes and curly blond hair and small pink lips that were frozen in a strange suckling of the air.

Empathy for the Devil

I first saw the massive spread of twinkling lights that is Los Angeles at night from the San Gabriel Mountains in the early 1990s while visiting from Philadelphia.
