This … endless … party. The human body, like a piñata, spilling words.
16 pieces, portrait fictions of 15 men & a boy - luminous and opaque, the veil-writing of inner and outer life. The stories are generally undated; generally read as taking place now or in the near future; many are obviously in NYC; some location undefined; one may be on another planet.
Often Jews, furious, tender and bright, forlorn and unforgiven, in a world without trace. Sex - the erotic - drives the thing. But that's - probably - not the misunderstood thing. More essentially the body - the lived somatic life, traumatic embodiment as emotional intensity - as words - as love - the catastrophe of relationship - is the ground of the work.
Includes the Mary Gaitskill-chosen 2012 Summer Literary Seminars winning story "See Oh Oh Pee [that]", published in Black Warrior Review; and others previously appearing in H.O.W. Journal, Paraphilia Magazine, and Lemon Hound.
