Issue 380 Back Cover: “How unsettling is desire! The devil never sleeps or keeps still. Desire is naughty and doesn’t
conform to our ideas, which is why we have such a need of them. Desire mocks all human
endeavor and makes it worthwhile. Desire is the original anarchist and undercover agent–no
wonder people want it arrested and kept in a safe place. And just when we think we’ve got
desire under control, it lets us down or fills us with hope. Desire makes me laugh because it
makes fools of us all. Still, rather a fool than a fascist.”
