MIKE EDISON is the former editor and publisher of High Times magazine. He is a widely acclaimed musician, social critic and journalist, a ferociously dedicated spoken word artist, and a professional wrestler of no small repute. His books include the outrageous memoir I Have Fun Everywhere I Go, the sprawling history of sex on the newsstand Dirty! Dirty! Dirty!, and the X-rated political satire Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie. More recently he collaborated with television personality and restaurateur Joe Bastianich on his New York Times bestselling memoir, Restaurant Man, and co-wrote The Carnivore’s Manifesto with Heritage Radio founder Patrick Martins, named by The Atlantic as one of the best food books of 2014. Edison speaks frequently on free speech, sex, drugs, and the American counterculture, and is “proof positive that one can be both edgy and erudite, lowbrow and literate, and take joy in the unbridled pleasures of the id without sacrificing the higher mind.” (PopMatters.com) His new book, You Are a Complete Disappointment, will be published in Spring 2016.
