King of Shadows

by Aaron Shurin
£12.99   paperback  City Lights Books (2008)

King of Shadows by Aaron Shurin King of Shadows assembles twenty-one highly charged personal essays circling around the author's gay and literary life in San Francisco, a poet's excursion through identity, sensibility, and the dangerous joy of living in the open.

"King of Shadows is at once celebratory and elegiac as it presents a life informed and impassioned by poetry. However unblinking, Shurin is less interested in confessional self-revelation than in the vertiginous mystery and complexity of Self during its passage through the daunting maze of experience. He has produced a beautifully realised and immediately resonant work of discovery."
(Michael Palmer)
