Quote from: Eigen Bast on June 10, 2020, 12:41:13 AMChristopher Gray - The Acid DiariesReading this on the recommendation of Erik Davis. Cover art is truly awful and the subtitle is dumb, but the book itself is very good. Older dude starts to take acid again in his 60s after his life collapses. The book is a diary of his trips and self reflections. Goes head on into mortality in meaning in a very honest way.

Among other things, I find fascinating his reflection on the concept of panopticon. Foucault is a great writer.Now I'm reading "The Kindly Ones" by Jonathan Littell.
