This collection of short stories presents a socially conscious critique of various issues in our society by re-visioning significant attitudes and activities concerning competition, militarism, environmentalism, advertising, watching tv, going to school, shopping, hunting, the news, sex, religion, and government. Social commentary and activism via fiction.
?As the title indicates, this collection of stories is about getting into the thick of things, taking sides, taking action, and speaking out loud and clear, however unpopular your opinion may be. ... refreshingly out of the ordinary.? Joan McGrath, Canadian Book Review Annual
