Our Lady of the Flowers Jean Genet
Genet is yet another gay author who gives voice to societyâ€™s outcasts and deviants. Translated from the French, Our Lady of the Flowers was his first novel, written over an extended period of time in prison due to his manuscripts being repeatedly confiscated by prison guards, it is narrated by a masturbating prisoner who conceives his characters as erotic fantasies. An elegiac work of tender, powerful, imaginative prowess.
