I Am the Oil of the Engine of the World by Jared Yates Sexton

Narcissism. Sexism. Consumerism and technological fetishism. The cult of media and the rot of war. In his third collection of stories, Jared Yates Sexton turns his eye to the ravages of the American Disease with twenty-five of his wildest and most experimental pieces. Told in raving mad prose fit for these savage times, Sexton skewers every sacred cow in an attempt to diagnose the sickness of Now.


"Jared Yates Sexton's latest collection is a book of revelations. Terrifying and tender, hilarious and insane: I AM THE OIL OF THE ENGINE OF THE WORLD is a must-read-before-the-world-ends. Read it as the world ends. Read it again after it ends. I will."
