it was amazing
Recommended for: punks
Read in March, 1993

This is my favorite of all of Henry Rollins' books. Especially good is the first section "124 Worlds". Very dark and provocative yet not without its flashing moments of humor. Rollins at the top of his game, an awesome thing to behold. He and Andrew Vachss are two of my favorite artists. Never met them (saw Black Flag in '85, but you know what I mean) and both Rollins and Vachss intimidate me in a weird, indefinable way, but they are men I hold in the highest regard.They have never disappointed me, always challenged, enlightened and entertained me. Read some Rollins. Start here.
