Overview

In Roomanitarian, popular author, actor, musician, and spoken-word artist Henry Rollins returns to the combative prose that has won him critical acclaim and a legion of devoted fans. The book is divided into three parts: The first section, "Walking the Chasm,” written in the form of a poem, epitomizes Rollins’s beautifully stark, hard-hitting style. The second part, "Ended," is a series of short prose pieces reminiscent of Solipsist. Finally, the biting humor and social commentary Rollins is renowned for is on full display in "To Ann Hitler with Love," a series of mock love letters to a fictional woman who bears a striking resemblance to conservative pundit Ann Coulter.

This is extremely different from all the other books I have read by Henry Rollins. The other books I have read are autobiographies and keep a day to day diary of what he does while living on the road. Where as this one is a little more quirky. He writes the views of different characters in the way they would think of the world around them. At some points I found this to be a difficult read, but it was still enjoyable and thought provoking. Rollins has a way with writing that gets me laughing along with his dark humor.
