This week, TNB contributor and resident Payne killer SEAN BEAUDOIN serves up a list of his favorite pieces:


D.R. Haney’s sardonic primer on how (or at least why) to fuck writing and get into retail.


Hank Cherry’s testimonial to the beautiful doom of James Carr.


Leslie Jamison’s Tom Drury-esque tale of embracing the Mid if not the West.


Joe Daly’s vaunted de-Matthews-izing, which has, over time, asserted itself as the moral compass for TNB.


Peter Schwartz’ genuinely excellent balls-out poem.


David S. Wills’ informative and hilarious paean to Korean trash-pop.


Sappho of Lesbos writes better than you do.


Marni Grossman Sleeps With Danger, wakes up, does it again.


Tom Hansen steps on the heart of Seattle.



The Nervous Breakdown is an online culture magazine and literary community. It was founded in 2006. Our masthead can be found here.
