PAIN: The Board Game
Author: Sampson Starkweather
Publisher: Third Man Books (2015)
The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said Life is Pain. Poet Sampson Starkweather says PAIN: The Board Game. Third Man Books’ fourth title has, evidently, caused pain in a few lives already: four printing presses in Nashville, TN, refused the book due to objections over content! PAIN: The Board Game is 160 pages of poetry, 15 full color illustrations by Jon-Michael Frank, and the first book of poetry that is both page-turning-analog and online interactive.
"Not only thrillingly accessible, not only deeply thought-provoking, but also, and without exaggeration, historically important."
