Martin Pousson takes the hard-earned wisdom he's gained as an American outsider three times over?Southerner, Cajun, and queer?and lets it dissolve on his burning poet's tongue. This cycle of short, but far from syrupy sweet, poems begins with a fey boy's odyssey through the labyrinths of masculinity, race, desire, and family tragedy in his childhood home of Louisiana. It follows the man as he escapes the South to find himself confined anew in the gay ghettos of New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. It ends with the man reborn a fierce writer who embraces No Place as his home and himself and other enlightened misfits as his family.
