J.C. Wickhart is an up in your face, tell it like it is author who comes equipped with witty, Tarantino-like dialogue that can carry on for pages and pages. Wickhart is competition, but he's the kind of competition I hope sticks around for a while longer. I can't think of another contemporary author who can be so disgustingly honest about human nature yet at the same time keep me chuckling aloud like a half-baked hyena high on 'One Hundred Pounds' of laughter.

“I always seek tranquility, but what would I do if I happened to acquire such composure? I suppose that the boredom from lack of the absurd would expand to such a great weight, I would have to run amuck and shatter it, for my own twisted freedom. Why step out of the ordinary? People have been known to go insane when faced with unfamiliar conditions for extended periods of time. So who is to say it can’t go vice versa? Release the madness, release the demons. Chin high, spine erect, fists clinched, feet firm, balls out. Claim the moment, but disregard the aftermath.” 6 likes
“No need for grudges or resentment. I wanted this, I wanted a new life. I was tired of everything, tired of me. It was due time to unknot the major ties that held me to this misery. Recreate myself, learn to deal with the harsh and unforgiving realities. It has taken me quite some time to come to terms with this new mentality. For the last few months I have been stuck in a moral quarrel with myself, eventually my integrity surrendered to the modesty of not giving a fuck.” 2 likes
