The tale of an epic misprint is both comforting and instructive.
It’s comforting because the vast majority of us, while not being perfect, haven’t wrongly put the cover of a cultural history of a video game on top of the pages of an experimental work of prose and poetry.
And it’s instructive because of the calm, clever, and gracious way in which the parties involved have responded publicly.
And if you want a RARE LIMITED EDITION anti-Trump poetry collection with a Super Mario cover, maybe pick up a book from Amazon and see if you get lucky! One of the two customers started reading, said the poems were good :)— Boss Fight Books (@BossFightBooks) November 7, 2018
Read more on the inadvertent mashup of Alyse Knorr‘s Super Mario Bros. 3 and Karen Finley‘s Grabbing Pussy here ... and if you're interested in reading either one with its intended cover, you're advised to order directly from their respective publishers.
