Impossible Princess is the third collection of gay short fiction by Kevin Killian. An original member of the notorious San Francisco-based "new narrative" circle including Dennis Cooper and Kathy Acker, Killian is a master short story writer, crafting campy yet edgy tales that explore both the humor and darkness of desire.
From an examination of an ex-British-boy-band-member's skeevy skivvies, to a sexual assault inside a copy machine, to a nocturnal tryst in a panther cage, Impossible Princess runs a bizarre gamut of erotic experience, where the appetite of lust is only satisfied by the peculiar unexpected.
