Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

"Work on Eye Scream started in 1986. I was crossing America constantly and

experiencing the morality shifts, attitudes, and rituals in different parts

of the country - the difference in the way people were in the Bible Belt as

opposed to New York City, the way blacks and whites interfaced, the

intolerance of homosexuality, the morality plays. I started to become aware

of how brutal the country is and how much ferocity, cruelty, and oppression

are inherent in the culture and how much of it was in me. I wanted to

document it and create a book that brought the whole thing to a boil and see w

here it left me off. In the summer of 1995, I finished the book and started

to edit. Re-reading the manuscript over and over, I realized all the things I

had picked up over a decade of playing Devil's advocate and it was inspiring

because it clearly defined who my enemies are. As an American, I feel it

impossible not to be infuriated by the way things are and have been. I refuse

to be happy about the day-to-day and go along with it. There's too much

spitting in my face and too much spitting in the faces of people who don't

know any other way of life. This book is brutal, and at times, funny. I know

that I will probably get a ton of shit for Eye Scream. Enjoy, or better

yet... don't." ---- Henry Rollins
