A Crack-up at the Race Riots: an excerpt

  There is a peculiar uneasiness you feel watching a Harmony Korine movie. You have difficulty drawing the line between the scripted and the improvised; the professional and the amateur; the real and the construed. In A Crack-Up at the Race Riots, Korine's vision emerges in novel form, as a montage of suicide notes, jokes, and half-remembered interviews. It's a book that demands an immediate response. It's a barrel of laughs that get caught in your throat.

In this issue of Bold Type, Harmony Korine offers an exclusive photo gallery of New York City and an excerpt from A Crack-Up at the Race Riots.
