Ruin Press are thrilled to present a new work by Marcus Whale, titled 'Devotionals'.
This small excerpt and interview with the author was filmed at Radio Free Alice Books and Records on Friday 11th December 2016.
The event also hosted readings by Jonno Revanche and Luke Devine
With thematic forbears in Genet, Cooper and Wojnarowicz, Devotionals looks at multiple forms of desire through both subjective and objective lenses. Lines are crossed, or unseen - and utterances, instant messages, and human senses interact to procure a new experience. Devotionals is all at once subversive, sexy, beautiful and strange.
Marcus Whale is a musician, writer and artist living in Sydney. This is his first collection of poetry.
Devotionals is limited to 100 copies - all numbered and signed by the author.
