Twentysix by Jonathan Kemp

Twentysix by Jonathan Kemp

£9.99Price

In the tradition of Georges Bataille, Kathy Acker and Jean Genet, these twenty-six erotic encounters combine to form a highly charged alphabet on the pursuit of pleasure and possibilities of language.

 

A nameless man graphically details his experiences as he cruises from parks to sex clubs in a relentless pursuit of pleasure and sexual gratification. Powerfully staging these anonymous encounters and describing each with luminous intensity, he continually tests the boundaries of sex, desire and the body until he is faced with the ultimate challenge: to capture adequately in words the physical sensations he experiences.

'Twenty-six beautiful, intense and extraordinary incantations of desire... brutal, tender and transformative; in the act of reading, the reader becomes part of something precious, powerful and profound.'—Gay's The Word Bookshop
