Spells of a Voodoo Doll: The Poems, Fiction, Essays and Plays of Assotto Saint
"When Assotto Saint died at
the age of 36 in 1994, he had already created a body of work--essays, poems,
plays--that changed gay male literature. Spells of a Voodoo Doll
collects all of Saint's published and unpublished work and brings it to a
broader reading public who has long had to make do with hard-to-find out of
print chap books and old magazines. Saint's vision is flamboyant, intense,
wickedly comic, and impassioned. He draws upon his Haitian heritage, music,
incantations, and radical politics to weave together a tapestry of
literature that celebrates life in the face of death and embraces politics
as a way to change the world." --
