Description

Fiction. Poetry. Drama. Literary Nonfiction. California Interest. African & African American Studies. Women's Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. Hybrid genre. ARK OF MARTYRS is a rewriting of Joseph Conrad's 1899 novel, Heart of Darkness. In the vocal traditions of gospel, toasting, and rap, Allan deSouza replaces Conrad's words with ones that loosely rhyme to form an autobiography of V whose story consists of the mental chatter, unspoken and unspeakable desires, avarice, anxieties, and political resentments of guests at a wedding party on a cruise ship that's adrift and under quarantine.
