 About the Book 

i was 17, i had dropped out of high school that day. i walked out of the cold dead building with a sense of complete freedom and sarcasm. i loved telling everyone there and my parents that this education would clearly not do, the beginning of a litany of bad decisions i would make over the course of the next several years. i was convinced there was something more moving and educational out there for me though i had no clue of where or how to go for such things. it was the first perfectly warm spring day which had everything to do with my final decision there was no way i could be locked in a box on a day like that. i got into my shitty car with a box of camel reds and drove directly to fern cliff with my friends ben and nick who had also made the decision. we got wonderfully high and stood in the waterfall in our underwear laughing at our cloudy rebellion and what we thought of as brilliance. i would spend many more days with those two in same places.later that day as i couldnt go home, i went to the longbranch coffee shop in carbondale sat in the window with my blank book and plotted out ignorantly my new plan. he came over and asked to sit with me, it was apparent that he was light years ahead of me in so many ways. i ended up back at his apartment in a lustful haze from his talking. we drank green tea out of tiny cups he read from this book as i laid on his bed. we rubbed our bodies together for hours, and i realized at that moment that i would leave that place for good and find somewhere much like his and start on my learning journey away from all of the cowards and authority around me. thank you even though i dont remember your name, you gave me a glimpse into something beautiful you made me thirsty. though soon after my life would take a more devastating but gorgeous turn i never lost that yellow thickness of his room and the music of him reading aloud to me as i doze in and out of confusion and contentment. i carried this book with me everywhere for four years and gave it to the next man that made me feel something quite similiar. i want the book back dammit
