PM Press: Punk, Politics and Publishing
Rick Kleffel, KQED, July 30, 2014
It’s no secret that the publishing world is being wrenched apart by forces well beyond its control. Between the ever-shrinking attention span of the average American and the arrival of an entire generation brought up on digital storytelling in video games, on the web and T.V., the book as a means of entertainment seems rather quaint, almost an affectation.
But make no mistake, says Ramsey Kanaan of PM Press, books and reading are still the most potent means of transmitting ideas, and he’s got a warehouse in Oakland full of books to prove it.
