While touring in Brazil, I catch a mysterious parasite and experience a total "liver crash." My recovery takes eight months. The doctors forbid me to perform and rehearse. My mother and Carolina take care of me. During this time I write Califas 2000 and Brownout, two of my darkest and most personal performance scripts ever. Also during my recovery, my new book comes out. Dangerous Border Crossers: The Artist Talks Back (Routledge) is a collection of writings and photos from 1997 to 2000.
