Shortlisted for the Polari First Book Prize 2014 Mesdames et Messieurs, presenting La Petite Mort, or, A Little Death ... A silent film, destroyed in a fire in 1914 at the Pathé studio, before it was seen even by its director.

A famous - and dashing - creator of spectacular cinematic illusions, husband to a beautiful, volatile actress, the most adored icon of the Parisian studios. All fit together, like scenes in a movie. And as you will see, this plot has a twist we beg you not to disclose ...

La Petite Mort
Rufus Hobster is a vampire. He writes poetry. Through his poetry Rufus shares what it feels like not being human, what it feels like to kill a human and what it feels like to love a human. La Petite Mort is his recollection of the early days when he first became a vampire, a time when he was nothing more than a rabid beast. It also concerns his life years later when he meets Elise, The Girl Who Synchronised Death. Despite the way Elise makes God weep, Rufus cannot leave her side and it is not until she abandons him that his psychosis guides his life more so than the virus running through his veins. La Petite Mort spans a number of genres, including dark romance, horror, philosophy and fantasy. It will appeal to fans of thought-provoking and gothic poetry, as well as fans of Eli’s previous books – Cruel, Four Days, Neophyte and his first poetry collection The Lines.

Pierre Michon is one of France's most significant contemporary writers. Since the publication in 1984 of his first book, "Vies minuscules," Michon's work has never ceased to evade generic classifications. His work ingests books, lives and thought and probes their complex interrelationship and those moments of convergence that transform an ordinary name into that of an 'Author' or of an 'Artist'. The contents of Michon's work are well documented: they are drawn from canonical novels, chronicles, archives and the biographies of artists' lives and are worked into cross-generic forms that revive names and make us rethink the uncertainty of literature. Less has been written of his engagement with avant-garde thought. The legacy of French avant-garde thinkers of the 1960s and 1970s, in particular the work of Roland Barthes, informs Michon's work. Barthes's notions of the referent, of intertextuality and of authorship, for example, are transposed, reconfigured and sometimes contested within Michon's work. In this way, Barthes's name, the afterlife of his thought, remains encrypted within Michon's prose. This book situates and reads Michon's texts through the complex inscription and transformation of names drawn from the Creuse, literature, art and avant-garde thought. And it is within this matrix that Michon puts in play his own name and its uncertain relation to literature.

Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public assembles drawings from memory of spaces in New York City where a public sexual encounter occurred. A project created in collaboration between Carlos Motta & Joshua Lubin-Levy,it features contributions from an intergenerational group of over 60gay men. Conceived as an atlas of queer affection, Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public proposes a subjective blueprint of the city, one that values not simply the space "as is," but how it has been performed and engaged,highlighting the fundamental connection between public space and queer life. The collected drawings,depicting sites extending from a residential rooftop to The Rambles in Central Park, remind us that public sex is not exclusively about a personal pursuit of pleasure-they also contain the seeds of historical social and political action that have brought together communities of gay men.Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public also asks questions challenging us to expand our vision for queer politics: What if our politics were rebuilt around a broader notion of intimacy rather than individuality? Can we foster, rather than police,the trust and affection inherent to desire and pleasure? Should equality be about difference, rather than assimilation?This book includes a preface by Forever & Today, Inc. Co-Curators Ingrid Chu & Savannah Gorton, a conversation between Carlos Motta & Joshua Lubin-Levy, and an essay by Joel Czarlinsky. Also assembled here are a series of short responses to the question "Does public sex matter?" by authors Aiken Forrett, Ann Pellegrini & Janet R. Jakobsen, Eileen Myles,Gordon Brent Ingram, Jill H. Casid, Johan Andersson, John Paul Ricco, Jose Esteban Munoz, Kate Bornstein, Katherine Franke, and Tim Dean. Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public is commissioned by Forever &Today, Inc.
