Camp Marmalade

Paperback

Price: $18.95

Overview

Camp Marmalade takes the freedoms of trance utterance–unfettered verbal association, explicit auto-ethnography, erotic bricolage–and applies a more stringent sense of time-as-emergency to this liberation-oriented poetic method. Part diary, part collage, part textbook for a new School of Impulse, Camp Marmalade assembles a perverse and giddy cultural archive, a Ferris wheel of aphorisms, depicting a queer body amidst a dizzying flow of sensations, dreams, and sex-and-death distillations–whether sugary, fruity, bitter, expired, or freshly jarred.

Reviews
"Koestenbaum's reflexivity is uncanny and gathers pathos from the very task of writing, which for him is tantamount to assembling a self. As Foucault put it, being gay 'is not to identify with the psychological traits and the visible masks of the homosexual, but to try to define and develop a way of life.' This book presents a hallucinatory glimmer of what that life might be without granting precedence to any single method."–Felix Bernstein "Bookforum"
