Here's an excerpt from an essay the Eyeshot editor has on Swink that just went up today: "What I’m really insisting on here is the need for a literary fundamentalist takeover of the United States of America. Let’s take over the country and transform the 50.7% who re-elected George W. Bush in 2004 into walking-reading foot soldiers for good. We’ll strap solar panels to their heads and backs and windmills to their foreheads and shoulders, we’ll send them on walking-reading jaunts through areas nearly obliterated by decades of lack of concern among self-interested Americans. Think of all the sustainable energy they’ll make, offsetting their Sasquatchian carbon footprint as they march endlessly through blighted areas, and those who have tools and skills can work to repair some buildings and . . ."

The essay also talks about Werner Herzog, Bruno Schulz, and Rocky.
