My Year 2002 : Love, Death, and Transfiguration

Douglas Messerli

This is Douglas Messerlis sixth volume collection of readings, events, and memories. In his sixth swing back and forth from the turn of the twenty-first century to the present, Messerli considers the complex and compelling issues of love and death, as well as transformation in films, poetry, theater, music, and personal events ranging from Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Djuna Barnes, John Wieners, and Billy Wilder, to encounters with Christopher Isherwood and gay porn star Leo Ford, re-readings of William Faulkner and Tennessee Williams, and the authors surgery for prostate cancer.
