Description

God Help Thee: A Manifesto is Joel Thomas Hynes's infamous performance piece, first presented at a fundraiser for the RCA Theatre Company, and later reprinted in Riddle Fence and Maisonneuve Magazine. In it, he takes on most of the cultural clichés and sacred cows of Newfoundland. It's the kind of carefully crafted, smart, gritty and incisive writing that readers have come to expect from Hynes, and a wonderful counter to those quaint Newfoundland tourist ads.

This revised version features original illustrations by Massachusetts-based wood engraver Abigail Rorer. The chapbook, which has been letterpress-printed on specially prepared papers, and handsewn, can be read as a book, or opened out into an extended tirade.
