An essay collection by a writer who "may be writing under . . . the influence of genius" (Vanity Fair)

In Sometimes I Think About It, Stephen Elliott gathers personal essays, reportage, and profiles written over fifteen years to tell a powerful story about outsiders and underdogs.

Moving from the self to the civic, the book begins with a series of essays that trace Elliott's childhood with an abusive and erratic father, his life on the streets as a teenager, and his growing interest in cross-dressing and masochism. These stories, which range from a comic portrait of a week spent hosting his younger brother to a brutal depiction of depression, provide a context for the essays that follow.

Stepping out into the world, Elliott tells of a man who loses his family in a rock slide in Southern California, explores the vexing realities of life in Palestine, and paints a chilling picture of a young man caught in the prison-industrial complex. The last section, "The Business of America Is Business," shows Elliott's abiding interest in the spectacle of money in America, from pop music to pornography to publishing, and it concludes with an off-kilter account of the tech industry's assault on West Los Angeles.

Building on the extraordinary storytelling that characterized his breakout book, The Adderall Diaries, Elliott's search for dignity and happiness leads him to tell with great sympathy the stories of those who are broken and seek to be whole.
