Tulsa – Larry Clark

“I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1943.  When I was sixteen I started shooting amphetamine.  I shot with my friends everyday for three years and then left town but I’ve gone back through the years.  Once the needle goes in it never comes out.”

And so this is a book about drugs; specifically speed-freaks, who daily (even almost hourly) inject billion-volt charges of chemicles that blast their bodies into towering, God-rush highs (and which leaves the mind and body ultimately as hollow and used-up as a rusting roadside beer can)

Because this is my 30th post, WordPress treated me to this quote I have instantly fallen in love with:
The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe. — Gustave Flaubert
