NIKKO at City Lights


Delfin Vigil’s fantastic true story Nikko: Concrete Commando, has just became available at City Lights in San Francisco. Nikko was first published here on The Rumpus, and then beautifully self-published in the real world. Buying the book in person saves you a dollar off the online price, and gets it to you way faster. It’s also sold at Aquarius RecordsDog Eared Books, or Needles & Pens.

Three cheers for self-publishing and independent bookstores.
