The exile is the controversial biweekly tabloid founded by Americans Mark Ames and Matt Taibbi that Rolling Stent has called "cruel, caustic, and funny" and "a must-read." In the tradition of gonzo journalists like Hunter S. Thompson, Ames and Taibbi cover everything from decadent club scenes to the nation's collapsing political and economic systems -- no person or institution is spared From their razor sharp satiric viewpoint. They take you beneath the surface of the Russia that most Western journalists cover, bringing to life the metropolis that Ames describes as "manic, nihilistic, grotesque, horrible; and yet, in its own way, far superior to any city on Earth."Featuring artwork and articles from their groundbreaking newspaper, The exile is the inside story of how the tabloid came to be and how Ames and Taibbi broke their biggest stories -- all the while playing hysterically vicious practical jokes, racking up innumerable death threats, and ingesting a motherlode of speed. It's a darkly funny, up-dose profile of the sordid underbelly of the New World Order that you will never forget.
