Huw Lemmey and McKenzie Wark will be launching Lemmey’s first book, titled Chubz – The Demonization of My Working Arse By Spitzenprodukte, at New York’s Interstate Projects on May 15.
Lemmey—aka Spitzenprodukte—has penned a work of fan fiction that follows Andy “Chubz” Wilson, just another NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) through his summer of chilling, dick sucking, and general fucking off. Eventually he meets a leftie journalist and “cute crypto-twink” Owen on Grindr: “Whilst Owen battles poppers-mad Prime Minister Nigel “Nige” Farage, our cock-hungry comrade wages his own “ass” war, and is left wondering: just what exactly is it he’s fighting for? Socialism? Barbarism? Or just cheap kicks?”
The comic blend of sex and politics are Lemmey’s trademark, seen in previous works like “Digital Dark Spaces” and “Devastation in Meatspace” (both in The New Inquiry). He is joined on Friday by McKenzie Wark, author of A Hacker Manifesto and Gamer Theory, and professor at the New School for Social Research and Eugene Lang College in New York City.
