Shane Allison

As the late and sorrowfully missed Kevin Killian put it, "Shane Allison taps directly into memory, like a faucet pushed into a maple tree to procure the sweet syrup. Sexy things, embarrassing things, the ugly and the fraught, the things of the child and the things of the man, all pour out in profusion." In addition to his mixed media collages, Allison is a poet, novelist, and memoirist, and the author of several books – including Black Fag (2004), I Want to Eat Chinese Food Off Your Ass (2008), Slut Machine (2011), You're the One I Want (2016), and Harm Done (2017). He lives in Florida.
