Hard Bones is a memoir about martial arts, mental illness, and political alienation. It is a fast-paced narrative that combines elements of journalism, history, and social science to give deeper context to what I experienced and the anger it generated. The narrative also serves as an artifact of our collective trauma around Covid-19 and the deep loneliness we experience within late capitalism.
