1. I read a lot Flannery O'Connor's stories this summer, one of the American writers that Bono has said influenced his lyric writing during The Joshua Tree. Specifically her novel Wise Blood he claimed inspired his character Shadow Man for Exit...after reading it this summer I can totally see the connection. Makes the live performance even creepier and more powerful. Definitely my favorite song from this tour.

    Anybody else ever read any O'Connor stuff?
