Lee Rourke reviews Noah Cicero's angry and timely The Human War (Fugue State Press):


There is obviously an element of Holden Caulfield about Mark [the narrator], which is unavoidable I suppose. What is refreshing about him though is the vitriol he possesses for his homeland and the people it has purposely moulded into the drones around him. America and its obsessions has driven him to despair, it has turned him not only against Bush and God but his very own species. Mark sees no way out. He can never escape this thought, so he gets drunk and he gets angry, knowing it is not the solution.
