Straight Razor by Randal Mann

first published 2013, paperback

 

Randall Mann's third collection showcases the debaucheries and traumas of growing up amid San Francisco's gay scene. These self-possessed new poems combine the regal and the raw, with Mann's renowned ear for poetic form matched by his unflinching eye for longing, alienation, and vice. A fetching chronicle of oversexed youth.


"Craft and bravura mix well...Mann shows himself [Thom Gunn's] apt pupil...The clarity startles." -Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times
