Whatever his subject matter, Killian maintains full authority-offering up a homoerotic interpretation of Flannery O'Connor's A Good Man Is Hard to Find and a brilliant imagined history of Hank Williams. Here, under the author's careful control and easygoing charisma, everything seems up for grabs, and almost anything seems possible."- Time Out New York Impossible Princess is the third collection of gay short fiction by PEN Award-winning San Francisco-based authorKevin Killian. A member of the "new narrative" circle including Dennis Cooper and Kathy Acker, Killian is a master short story writer, crafting campy and edgy tales that explore the humor and darkness of desire.
