New review for Mr If's "Violence is the Answer"

Many thanks to Christopher Frost for his great review of Mr If's Violence is the Answer in Neon Magazine. (And thanks to Neon for continuing to support the Philistines.)

It was always going to be a difficult book to review, and this is a frank and fair assessment.

"Violence Is The Answer says some terrible things, but it’s one of the best chapbooks I’ve read in a long time. It is intimate, honest, and completely open. Having read it, I feel as though I’ve met and talked with the author in person, and though I didn’t actually like him as such, what he had to say was powerful, intelligent and shocking. Some will enjoy this book, and many more will simply be offended by it. Either way it gets a reaction."
