An American DemonOf life lesson summoned through both God An American Kindle and demons while settling within eighties hardcore punk culture and its radical to the core and most assuredly non evangelical parables Grisham leads us cleverly gorgeously between temporal violence and bigger picture spirituality toward something very much like a path to salvation and enlightenment An American Demon flourishes on both extremes as a scary hardcore punk memoir and as a valuable message to souls navigating through an overly mater. This book is not for everyone It is gritty uncomfortable and much like a train wreck you won't want to look away or miss a word I just wish that there was an audio version since I think it would have been even better to hear Jack Grisham recount these tales in his own voice Since this is labelled a memoir I am sure that there are certain elements of the story that are not exactly how others remember them and are colored through vast amounts of alcohol and drugs If you know that going in you won't be disappointed Just like punk rock there is a lot of in your face anger and violence so if you can't mosh with Jack's brain don't attempt itThe book recounts his childhood and growing up in the early 1960 70's with a pretty common story during this time period a lot of teens drank did drugs and had sex I think if he had been born a decade later he would have been labeled ADD and put on drugs immediately Instead Grisham self medicates to the extreme like many of this generation He pretty much drinks and takes whatever is put in front of him You can really feel the pain he is experiencing If this had been fiction it would fit nicely into the paranormal realm that is so popular right now I mean I know I have read stories about evil demons that rape and pillage in pretty much the same manner It takes on a whole nother meaning when it is presented as truthThe demon analogy really works It explains how he drove himself to change and become human through sheer willpower and a few people encouraging him to change The only negative thing I can say about this book is that Grisham's charisma only somewhat comes through on the pages He is one of those larger than life characters that cannot be contained by pages Oh and isn't that cover spectacular

An American Demon is Jack Grisham’s story of depravity and redemption terror and spiritual deliverance While Grisham is best known as the raucous and provocative front man of the pioneer hardcore punk band TSOL True Sounds of Liberty his writing and true life experiences are physically and psychologically complex unsettling and violent than those of Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk Elouently disregarding the prefabricated formulas of the drunk to sober bad to good tale this is an entirely new kind. It says on the jacket If you've ever found yourself unable to turn away from witnessing an accident crash or natural disaster you'll read An American Demon straight through And so I did I had to put it down a few times it isn't a nice book after all; Grisham wasn't a nice person but I didn't stay away for long I'm not even sure it's a GOOD book uite frankly but I seem to have lost all perspective on what a good book even means any let me back up If you know anything about the early LA punk scene you have heard stories about Jack Grisham either about what an absolute asshole he was by which I mean he was basically a sociopath torturing people and killing animals and throwing people over the sides of bridges for the lulz or about his incredible charisma Probably both; the two things are inextricably linked And now he has written his memoirs sort of except in this dissociated multiple personality way first person through the eyes of a demon That distance and I can see why he had to do it because it's difficult to write this kind of stuff when it's fiction and it's harder when it's real so this must have been exceedingly rough going if he's reformed even a uarter as much as he claims to I believe him but then again that's his thing you always believe him sometimes makes things strange and the demon persona gets a little pretentious sometimes Like he is the #1 demon Really You're the worst thing out there This is deeply ugly shit yes but it's not even close to the worst thing out thereAnyway I don't know Like I said I couldn't put it down Read it if you like early LA punkhardcore trainwrecks or amorality tales he makes no apologies which is another thing the demon persona allows him to do just say what happened without getting caught up in the morality of it or in excuses or justifications or apologia; it is what it is and now it's done
