Diary as Sin PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Diary as Sin free pdf Diary as Sin is the powerful and evocative story of a blind girl, Rosanna Galvez. Confined to a private Catholic home in New Mexico, she unveils her beginnings as an incest baby - and moves through the odyssey beyond - with powerful incantatory language. Through poetic and often painful recall, Rosanna weaves a diary that will spellbind the reader with its imagistic and visionary prowess. Alexander cites Beckett, Bernhard and Goytisolo as an "ancestral trilology" for the work, living up to his forebears with some aplomb.

About Will Alexander

Will Alexander is known to the literary world as the avant garde poet who continually defies easy classification. Though a Los Angeles native, his work resembles Breton, Paz, Cesaire, or Gascoyne more than anything in contemporary US poetics. Even such comparisons are glib as Alexander is that rare voice that must be experienced in its own right. For Harryette Mullen he is a poet whose lexicon, a 'glossary of vertigo,' might be culled from the complete holdings of a reconstituted Alexandrian library endowed for the next millennium. For Nathaniel Mackey 'his thicketed prose advances lexical ignitions of astounding angle and amplitude'.
