Because "For every story told about someone else is about the person who is telling it." Because we try to make sense of the world by making sense of ourselves. Because we want to believe that we are special. Because we want to be validated. Because we always project who we are onto those we worship. Because we love to believe that madness is genious and genius is unique. Because we want to believe suffering is unviversal. Because we want to believe the tortured artist is romantic. Because we should know better. Because fiction is memoir is fiction is nonfiction. Because Scott McClanahan knows all of this as well as anyone. Because Ricardo Cavalo is love. And because The Incantations of Daniel Johnston is a sad and lovely vision that is sure to change your life.
