King: A Street Story

A Street Story

In this book you will be led to a place you haven't been, where few stories come. You will be led by King -- a dog or is he a dog? -- to a wasteland beside the highway called St. Valery. Here, at the end of the twentieth century, among smashed trucks, old boilers, and broken washing machines, live Libreto, Malak, Jack, Corrina, Danny, Anna, Joachim, Saul, Alfonso, and Vico and Vica.

Listen to King's voice as he tells a different kind of story: twenty-four hours pass and lives are lived. It is good to have survived another winter, for now it is spring, when the nights, although cold, are no longer harsh enough to kill. The wet season is over, and with it the hopelessness of damp. Today the sun will shine: of what else will the day be made?

"King" is at once a furious homage to the homeless and a lyrical meditation on language and experience. The bitter yet celebratory prose speaks to us all.
