Proud Flesh by John Wilkinson

Book Description

Wilkinson's searing classic, Proud Flesh, is a blistering journal of love's intensities and convulsions. Panning across its characters like a camera, this is lyric poetry as film noire, filled with jealousy, violence and sexual obsession. Incandescent images and language play across the bodies of the lovers, each caught, frame by frame, in an intense act of surveillance.
