Grasshopper Jungle


I read somewhere that human beings are genetically predisposed to record history. We believe it will prevent us from doing stupid things in the future. This is my history. There are things in here: Babies with two heads, insects as big as electric guitars, God, the devil, limbless warriors, rocket ships, sex, diving bells, theft, wars, monsters, internal combustion engines, love, cigarettes, joy, bomb shelters, pizza, and cruelty. Just like it’s always been.
