The story follows Jorge Ruiz Acidhead sometime after coming home from Iraq, as he drifts through simple jobs and music festivals. As America slides into harsh times, he increasingly embraces a lifestyle of minimalism, humor and communion, which he comes to appreciate as a form of human redemption. The hallucinogen is culted as a sort of secular sacrament in sometimes hilarious ways throughout this piece of subversive writing.
