Mike Sager has turned tabloid news into magazine pieces that were some of the most admired journalism in two decades. From his landmark story “The Devil and John Holmes” to his Rick James piece, this new collection focuses on the dark side of American life, including an intimate glimpse of Roseanne Barr’s multiple personality disorder and hanging out on the road with death metal gods. Sager is the anthropologist of places we can only imagine and would rather not visit.
