Henry Rollins - Eye ​Scream
"Work ​on Eye Scream started in 1986. I was crossing America constantly and experiencing the morality shifts, attitudes, and rituals in different parts of the country - the difference in the way people were in the Bible Belt as opposed to New York City, the way blacks and whites interfaced, the intolerance of homosexuality, the morality plays. I started to become aware of how brutal the country is and how much ferocity, cruelty, and oppression are inherent in the culture and how much of it was in me. I wanted to document it and create a book that brought the whole thing to a boil and see w here it left me off. In the summer of 1995, I finished the book and started to edit. Re-reading the manuscript over and over, I realized all the things I had picked up over a decade of playing Devil's advocate and it was inspiring because it clearly defined who my enemies are. As an American, I feel it impossible not to be infuriated by the way things are and have been. I refuse to be happy about the day-to-day and go along with it. There's too much spitting in my face and too much spitting in the faces of people who don't know any other way of life. This book is brutal, and at times, funny. I know that I will probably get a ton of shit for Eye Scream. Enjoy, or better yet... don't." ---- Henry Rollins

Henry Rollins - Smile, ​You're Travelling
Using ​insight, the author shares journals from his gruelling world tours of 1997 and 1998, as well as a record of the fulfilment of his longstanding dream to journey through Africa. He takes us through highs and lows, frustrations and exhilaration - from roving gangs of baboons in Kenya to haggling with immigration officials in Madagascar.

Henry Rollins - Black ​Coffee Blues
"If ​I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light, If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you." Henry Rollins, renowned spoken-word performer, musician, actor and author of several books, has a unique, hard-edged view of the world. This collection of writings from 1989 - 1991 is the classic Rollins book. From dramatic fiction shorts detailing stark, disturbing realities to gut-wrenching tour journals destroying all misconceptions of the glamour of fame and the music industry; from the challenging poetry to revealing dream sequences, Rollins' writing is unflinching in its honesty, uncompromising in its truth and irresistibly addictive.

Henry Rollins - Get ​In The Van
Henry ​Rollins graphic account of life on the road recounts his harrowing exploits with one of the most important rock bands in modern history, Black Flag. From his acceptance into the band in 1981 to its demise in 1986, Get in the Van comprehensively documents his six year "tour of duty" with the band. Primarily constructed from his tour journals, Rollins chronicles his years in the band with brutal candor and incisive humor -- years strewn with overzealous fans, truculent policemen, poverty and all-night drives. Contains Rollins' 1981-1986 Black Flag tour journals, nearly 200 photographs and illustrations, and his entire 1981-1986 tour itinerary.

Henry Rollins - Punk ​a platón
A ​könyv brutális és brutálisan őszinte, olykor megrázóan zavaró képi és verbális hatásokkal élő napló a Black Flag zenekar "fénykoráról". Az 1981-86-os időszakot átfogó kötet több mint egyszerű beszámoló egy zenekar életéről. A vég nélküli ki- és bepakolások, utazások, küzdelmek, megaláztatások, rendőri és rajongói brutalitások elsorolása mellett korrajz is, élet, sőt kíméletlen társadalom- és "emberiségkritika", amelyben mindenki megkapja a magáét.

Henry Rollins - Do ​I Come Here Often?
Do ​I Come Here Often? includes interviews with Jerry Lee Lewis and Isaac Hayes, articles on Roky Erickson and David Lee Roth and Rollins' 1991Lollapalooza tour journals and features illustrations by Shannon Wheeler("Too Much Coffee Man").

Henry Rollins - Solipsist
"I ​saw the word Solipsist while reading the dictionary in 1993. I was living in NYC at the time and the word defined how the city made me feel. I worked on this book in several cities all over the world until 1996. The writing is obsessive and claustrophobic. To be solipsistic is to totally realize the ego and the nightmare of utter self-possession. I went for it and it swallowed me whole." --Henry Rollins
