Years from now, the enlightened civilization ahead of us will stare bewildered at our lethal masculinity and say, But each one, when he was running, tied bows to the top of his feet.
—Buddy Wakefield, A Choir of Honest Killers

A CHOIR OF HONEST KILLERS
A Choir of Honest Killers, Buddy Wakefield’s newest book of prose and poetry, is a staggeringly honest account of life alone on the road, carefully confronting a debilitating overcompensation of masculinity, growing up gay in the south, the ruins of public shame, and the prolonged agony of a failing relationship.
No matter how brutal it gets, this story continuously rockets forward in a one-man relay race to the light with refreshing humor and keen insights that Wakefield credits to frequent specific serendipity and a single sudden moment of bliss.
