This chapter focuses on tenements, cockroaches, and fantasies of superiority to other people and difference from cockroaches, and how this “evolved,” from the early mid-twentieth century to the 1970s, in two stories: racing cockroaches on a dining room table, and racing motorcycles across hills of garbage. Constructing fragile lives against the apparent threats of socialism and barbarism. All this to illuminate how everyday life among the victims of inequality is far more than just everyday.
