"Do It Again" by Hunter Madsen

"Do It Again"


Repeated slip-ups on the same wretched, old banana peel: the theme of addicted desire is familiar to fans of William Burroughs, Groundhog's Day, Becker and Fagen, demon alcohol, Lucy with the football, and toxic relationships.  As the novelist Sheila Heti once warned darkly, "When a person slips on a banana peel and dies, then her life is a joke."  Don't be a clown - surely it won't come to that, surely we'll do better next time.
