Janet Sarbanes, Army of One

 

There are plenty of folks who should be in the Army of One, she decided, but never find the courage to enlist. Instead, they wait around to be drafted, resenting their friends and families for taking up so much of their time, and accumulating a vast porn collection or a novel in a drawer. She’d been one of those people. They’re the ones who are strangely chipper at funerals. They’re also the ones who drive too fast, and cheat at ping-pong. It’s a pity they can’t just get called up, because the Army of One would straighten them out.

 

Janet Sarbanes has written multiple academic pieces on utopian and cultural theory. She teaches cultural studies and narrative theory in CalArt’s School of Critical Studies and MFA Writing Program. Sarbanes has presented at conferences held by the Society for Utopian Studies and the Society for Narrative Literature (2006–2007).
