"Kevin Killian's Impossible Princess was my first acquisition as an editor for City Lights. To me, Kevin is a master short story writer his virtuosity as a fiction writer is almost hidden by his outrageous content, but I feel like his technique ranks with classic short story writers like Hemingway or Salinger. My other reason was that Kevin is associated with many better-known authors like Kathy Acker and Dennis Cooper, yet he hasn't received the same level of attention despite his abilities. I felt like he was ripe for the picking, in other words, for a bigger press like City Lights and was pretty surprised he hadn’t already been picked up by someone else. But it’s all to the good, in terms of our publishing he’s a great addition to our list." -Garrett Caples, ed.
