First Print Edition Metal Travel Book THE BIG SHINY PRISON + Worldwide Distro

The First Print Edition of underground journalist Ryan Bartek’s extreme metal travel book “THE BIG SHINY PRISON” has been released to worldwide distribution.

This 484 page, 6x9 Paperback is available for $18.95 / €17 through Amazon USA, Europe & UK. “The Big Shiny Prison” is also available at 55% wholesale discount through the Ingram Spark/LSI distribution network, putting it on the systems of 38,000+ booksellers & retailers worldwide.

Inspired by the legendary works of Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson, Detroit writer Ryan Bartek traveled the USA to create his own heavy metal road saga of extreme journalism.

1 year, 35 States, 600+ hours on Greyhounds & 1000 cities later, “THE BIG SHINY PRISON” was complete – a unique travel book featuring hundreds of interviews with legends in the metal/punk undergrounds, as well as other alternative cultures in the USA.

Less a "music book" and more a tribute to the Beat Generation, this genre-defying work combines the classic autobiographical road novel with Bartek's self-styled "Extreme Journalism" within the Modern Underground.
