"This was a dream which made me sad and frightened. It began somewhere in the middle. There was a jelly which was alive." Clarice Lispector, January 29, 1972
GLORY HOLE is now available, "a gorgeous, shape-shifting trapdoor into the void," a "kaleidoscopic lens through which beauty turns to horror, and vice versa," a "sinuous, complex book that pursues the interlinked stories of characters on the margins of social classes, conventions, and sexual/gender structures." It's the funny and slightly terrifying account of an investigation into the identity of one Huey Beauregard, a mysterious author and former child prostitute who bears an uncanny resemblance to JT Leroy. One might go so far as to say "Based on a true story."
