In these narratives, Robert Glück takes essay, lyric, fable, gossip, and dismantles these traditional categories. With their parts he constructs stories where emotions find release and events yield their meanings. His prose is studded with flashing, inventive wit and physical detail so intimate it passes into a shared sensory life.
Each story is a fresh start. Childhood, gay experience, films, TV, joy in the senses, domesticity, the masquerade of bourgeois safety. Robert Glück invites us to these occasions so taht we may unravel the knot of sexuality, violence and power.
