For reasons that are obvious to anyone who knows his biography and his work, Jim Goad might be the most underappreciated social critic in America. He edited the notorious and influential zine Answer Me!, authored The Redneck Manifesto, and served more than two years in prison for a crime he writes about with breathtaking honesty. He currently writes for Taki's Magazine and hosts the podcast Jim Goad's Group Hug.
