Cut to the Twisp: The Lost Parts of Youth in Revolt and Other Stories

C. D. Payne, Author Aivia Press $12.95 (162p) ISBN 978-1-882647-03-3
When Doubleday published C.D. Payne's cult favorite, Youth in Revolt, in 1995, about 100 pages of text were scrapped. Cut to the Twisp collects these ""lost parts"" and provides page references to help hardcore fans connect the dots. Also included are a dozen of Payne's comic pieces, including ""Let Us All Write a Sophisticated Love Scene,"" a hilariously noirish multiple-choice exercise; ""The Visitation,"" in which a genteel Brit entertains a space alien who wears a leisure suit and enjoys Cheezits; and ""Alumni Notes,"" a roster of the dubious accomplishments of fictional alums like Crandle Holmes, whose Internet cupcake business went belly-up.
