“It's my duty as a human being to be pissed off”
Eric Bogosian, subUrbia

“At least I admit that I don't know. I know that things are fucked up, beyond belief, and I have nothing original to say about it.”
Eric Bogosian

“I mean, what kind of literature do you think ants would make if they could read? Not F. Scott Fuckin’ Fitzgerald, not Joyce or D-D—D-Dostoyevsky, not even friggin’ Steinbeck. Wouldn’t make any sense to ’em. You ever read Nabokov’s Lolita? Best book of the twentieth century, but old-fashioned my friend, old fuckin’ fashioned. Same old story over and over again, one more guy mesmerized by his own dick, wandering around the wreckage of his life. Who the fuck cares about that? Give me the Knights of the Round Table! Give me Merlin! Or better, the “wine dark sea”! Much more interesting.”
Eric Bogosian, Perforated Heart
