    For more than 40 years, R. Crumb has documented his nightly dreams in a meticulously kept, written journal. This stood as a guarded secret, strangely enough, while Crumb has never lacked a compulsion to write about the rest of his his comics. All of his well-documented preoccupations are present—rampant egomania, insatiable lust, profound self-disgust, the sad beauty of old America, the moral bankruptcy of new America and the fool's errand quest for spiritual enlightenment. Here they are, entirely untamed, springing forth from forces beyond even his control--his own sub-conscious. All published for the first time. Lightly illustrated. Learn More
