FRR Audio: A Burglar's Guide to the City
Some musings on the buildings around us and those that exploit it.
A Burglar’s Guide to the City explores the architectural world around us by examining the movements of those that defy those structures and the “correct” way they’re supposed to be used. If we’ve managed to move beyond the social and moral boundaries of this world, burglars have defied the more literal functions of inside, outside, floor, ceiling, or path, hall, doorway – and maybe ‘human’.
“People cut into one room only to emerge from the one next door moments later—but they do so on all fours, using doors meant for animals, or they squirm through holes in the floor like worms, like serpents, as if shape-shifting back and forth between species, between minerals and plants, burrowing their way into buildings before disappearing again through the ceiling in ways that architects would never have imagined nor planned.”
This excerpt features many stories of burglars and criminals who messed up and got caught (or betrayed, in the case of George Leonidas Leslie – who was responsible for 80 percent of bank robberies in the entire country during his peak). If a burglary is successful, chances are the normie journalist who wrote this book didn’t hear about it (one major exception being the Hole in the Ground Gang). Maybe the best outlaws don’t make the history books… at all?
