Let's Do This Shit!

We have evolved a new cosmogony of literature, Boris and I. It is to be a new Bible-The Last Book...We will exhaust the age. After us not another book-not for a generation, at least. Heretofore we have been digging in the dark, with nothing but instinct to guide us. Now we shall have a vessel in which to pour the vital fluid, a bomb which, when we throw it, will set off the world. We shall put into it enough to give writers of tomorrow their plots, their dramas, their poems, their myths, their sciences. The world will be able to feed on it for years to come. It is colossal in its pretentiousness. The thought of it almost shatters us.

-Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller
