‘Everyone ought to read Brian Blanchfield’s Proxies immediately . . . It will change you’ Jonathan Lethem
‘A rich and compelling personal account.’ Financial TimesIn this memoir in twenty-four essays, Blanchfield focuses on a startling miscellany of topics – Foot Washing, Dossiers, Br’er Rabbit, Housesitting, Man Roulette, the Locus Amoenus – that begin to unpack the essayist himself and his life’s rotating concerns: sex and sexuality, poetry and poetics, and his upbringing in working-class, Primitive Baptist, North Carolina.
