“Subverting timeworn clich├ęs about beauty, this book delivers a fresh exploration of everything from body art and big noses to musical ‘perfection’ and misguided parenting. It’s a stunning, unforgettable collection.”

Coming June 9, 2012: THE BEAUTIFUL ANTHOLOGY, an exciting new collection of essays, stories, poems and art, created by writers from around the world all responding to the essential question: What is beauty?

This endlessly entertaining, touching, shocking, and thought-provoking new work from TNB Books, the publishing arm of the acclaimed literary Web site, The Nervous Breakdown (thenervousbreakdown.com) should change minds about what is truly beautiful.  Is beauty to be found in a tattoo, in a scar, or in being clean after years of drug abuse? Is a tennis serve beautiful? Is contemporary architecture beautiful—or hideous? Is there beauty in urinal design, or in the foot of a poor, young Thai man?

THE BEAUTIFUL ANTHOLOGY features the work of well-known and emerging authors alike, including: Robin Antalek, author of The Summer We Fell Apart; Jessica Anya Blau, author of Drinking Closer to Home and The Summer of Naked Swim Parties; Greg Olear, author of Totally Killer and Fathermucker; J.E. Fishman, author of Primacy; Lance Reynald, author of Pop Salvation; Gina Frangello, author of Slut Lullabies and My Sister’s Continent; Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart; Victoria Patterson, author of This Vacant Paradise and Drift; and Ronlyn Domingue, author of The Mercy of Thin AirOther contributors include: Matthew Baldwin, Nora Burkey, Elizabeth Collins, Rich Ferguson, M.J. Fievre, Marni Grossman, James D. Irwin, Quenby Moone, Uche Ogbuji, Rachel Pollon, Judy Prince, Stephanie St. John, Steve Sparshott, Tyler Stoddard Smith, Catherine Tufariello, Angela Tung, Stephen Walter, and Zoe Zolbrod.
