Kind Words For ‘Fug You’


The Times reviews “Fug You,” Ed Sanders’s recently published ’60s memoir about his time as frontman of the Fugs and owner of the Peace Eye Bookstore in the East Village. “His interest in chaos always had a firm limit, for himself and for others,” writes Ben Ratliff. “Probably that’s why he’s alive, and why we can read this funny, instructive, nourishing book.” Mr. Sanders, who spoke with The Local last month, is due to appear at our event, “Blowing Minds: The East Village Other, the Rise of Underground Comix and the Alternative Press, 1965-72.”
