He is a typical American. He was shot five times. She is a typical American. She was shot six times. He is Segundo Morris. He feeds on violence, and breathes bullets. She is all of us. His indifference is our indifference. Her refuge from the storm is found inside us. This book was inspired by actual shootings over the 4th of July weekend 2014 in Chicago, IL. The bullets are real. Mixing journalism, absurdist prose, scripts, autobiography, shape poetry and other forms, Boiled Americans is a puzzle box in book form, inspired by the violence of living in urban America and exploding the tendency to forget or ignore. You are in this book. So am I. Breathe.
