I absolutely loved this book for its uncompromising and realistic narrative on love, hate, indifference, and a myriad of other feelings.

If you’re lonely, depressed, roollins in self hatred, read this book. After joining the short-lived Washington, D. Aug 15, Abigail Abbe rated it it was amazing Shelves: Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

Redundant I choose this rating because I couldn’t finish the book. This book and all of the powerful words inside described henty way I was feeling better than anything else ever could.

I like Rollins auto-biographical work.

Showing of 37 reviews. Rollins writes beautifully, poetically, and from the heart without being sentimental, though it is also confrontational and raw.

I hate wasting my time on a book. It is what it says it is: I liked that he liked the English language. It needs no makeup to look beautiful. The writing is obsessive and claustrophobic. There’s hery problem loading this hdnry right now.

Interesting read from Henry Rollins. It took me much longer than it should have to finish as sometimes the negativity was too much to bear. There are some really fantastic excerpt that are simultaneously grotesque and beautiful; a difficult feat to create imagery in prose that are both at once, the mark of a talented and complex writer.

Since Black Flag, Rollins has embarked on projects covering a variety of media. Please try again later.

However, if you’re comfortable in a little bubble of blind optimism, stay as far away as possible. I fell in love with this book. Rollins is best known for his work in the music scene but he is also a thoughtful -if not overly dark- writer.

I’d recommend buying this as something to read every once in a while. To be solipsistic is to totally realize the ego and the nightmare of utter self-possession.

You can’t really call this a collection of short stories because there isn’t any plot. To read this book and understand its contents fully is to have your deepest darknesses rollina and laid out in front of you, forcing you to confront them.


I have gifted this book to many of rolkins friends.
