Top Stories: A Prose Periodical
1st Edition, 2022
Top Stories was a periodical published between 1978-1991 by American artist and photographer Anne Turyn in Buffalo and New York with a focus on experimental fiction and art. All 29 issues of the periodical were reprinted here in 2022 by Primary Information in two volumes, and feature contributions by Kathy Acker, Laurie Anderson, Jenny Holzer, Glenn O’Brien, Richard Prince, Lynne Tillman and many more. Experimental and stylistically diverse in nature, Top Stories primarily featured female artists, although Turyn has said that a few men “crept in as collaborators.” The largest issue of the periodical is Cookie Mueller’s How to Get Rid of Pimples, which consists of a series of character studies of friends interspersed with photographs by David Armstrong, Nan Goldin, and Peter Hujar.
