Description
"The Mechanics of Homosexual Intercourse," a radical map of shortcomings in our daily experiences in the form of a debut story collection, presents thematically related windows into serious emotional trouble and monstrous love. Lonely Christopher combines a striking emotional grammar, reminiscent of Gertrude Stein's "Three Lives," with an unyielding imagination in the lovely/ugly architecture of his stories.
Lonely Christopher is the author of several poetry chapbooks and is a contributor to the poetry volume "Into" (Seven Circles Press). His plays have been published, staged in New York City and internationally, and released in Mandarin translation. His fiction received Pratt Institute's 2009 Thesis Award. He is a founding member of the small press The Corresponding Society and an editor of its biannual journal "Correspondence." He lives in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
