THE RUB

Over on the New Museum site, you can find Cathy Park Hong and Mores McWreath’s ”The Rub,” an e-chapbook of GIFs and haiku that explores shame and failure in stand-up and online comedy. (Be warned: It’s not entirely safe for work.) 

Cathy Park Hong, you’ll recall, is the author of Engine Empire, which David Mitchell called “novelistic, meditative, offbeat, and soulful.”
