Autobiography of a Tattoo


"Autobiography of a Tattoo" is an investigative literary work about the education and pursuit of homosexual desire. Its mixture of serial stories and modernist meditations invites readers on a journey that rangers from post-Wall Berlin to Plato's Athens. Stan Persky, the author of "Buddy's" and "Then We Take Breaks," here breaks through the current impasse of contemporary gay/queer writing. Innovative in both form and content, "Autobiography of a Tattoo" probes the tensions between the memory and anticipation of desire, sexual representation and moral relationships, the illuminating glimpse of the immediate and the long view of civilization. Can writing be both hot and thoughtful, intimate and analytic? Find out why Stan Persky is the most important writer about homosexuality in North America today. Hide synopsis
