Harmony Korine is my hero

I'm was looking up the director of Gummo, (because he's absolutely nuts!) and I see he's written a book.

A Crack-Up At The Race Riots
Harmony Korine
In this first book of fictional set pieces, Korine captures the fragmented moments of a life observed through the demented lens of media, TV, and teen obsession. Korine reinvents the novel in this highly experimental montage of scenes that seem both real and surreal at the same time. With a filmmaker's eye and a prankster's glee, this bizarre collection of jokes, half-remembered scenes, dialogue fragments, movie ideas, and suicide notes is an episodic, epigrammatic lovesong to the world of images. Korine is the voice of his media-savvy generation and A Crack-Up at the Race Riots is the satiric lovechild of his dark imagination.

I'm going to hunt this book down, and read it. I've read a couple of interviews by Korine and he definitally has his own ideas.
