Among the brawny and muscled California beauties, there is one sharp brunet who is building a body of radical, sex-positive work. Jamison Karon completed his erotic memoir, How to Be a Faggot, during his summer 2016 stint as artist-in-residence at the Tom of Finland Foundation. The collection of nonfiction stories is a sexy and telling account of the young writer’s sexual experiences, integrated with poetry and social commentary. The book is illustrated by the Los Angeles artist Van Jazmin.
How to Be a Faggot explores a queer experience of the 21st century, while paying homage to the lineage of LGBT writers and artists.
"Frank and fancy, new world and old world, How to Be a Faggot is beyond all category. With a sophisticated and intimate tongue, Jamison Karon speaks directly into your ear, whispering of desire free of inhibition and full of poetic expression. At once classic in form and contemporary in content, this book reveals secret depths and secluded corners. Urgent and vital, a genuinely fresh voice." —Martin Pousson, author of Black Sheep Boy
