It has a kind of hypnotic power that makes it better than it has a right to be. It's sort of about being gay and sort of about being submissive, like it sort of gropes for the ideas without the words to manifest them.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 158567043X, Hardcover)

In the tradition of The Story of O, a daring gaze into the life and mind of an avowed "zombie," from the author of Scary Kisses and City Poet.

Meet "Zombie," a strange and wonderful young man growing up in Truckstown, Pennsylvania, whose earliest childhood memory of visiting the "Sacred Voodoo Chamber" (with its beautiful glowing rocks and mysterious mummy) in the nearby Scranton Art Museum leaves him in thrall and begins in him a process of "zombification" that will last a lifetime. Fear and worship become his guiding forces as he stumbles through life wondering if there are more of his kind or if he is alone. After a series of petty crimes, commited at the behest of his first "master," Zombie is given a one-way bus ticket to New York City, along with a tiny inheritance. He embarks on a weird, dark, surprisingly funny, and ultimately poignant odyssey where he meets those who will be responsible for his destiny, which unfolds after a trip to Haiti where he explores the ancient African religions where the loas rule. Zombie is a unique story, a fable that dares to explore the dark recesses of human desire.

Praise for Scary Kisses:

"Crisp, cinematic. . .an utterly realistic and classy chronicle."--The New York Times Book Review

Praise for City Poet:

"The first biography of the poet Frank O'Hara is also an extremely informative gossip survey of the social and sexual mores of the New York avant-garde art scene of the 50s and 60s. . .Entertaining and readable."--San Francisco Chronicle
