Raw, tender, raunchy, melancholy, witty, and richly allusive, Three-Way Renegade is a satiric portrait in verse of Samuel Steward, a flamboyant, anarchic gay icon who passed from a life as a discontented academic to a sensational career as tattoo artist and notorious writer of erotic and pornographic literature. Composed entirely of octets (shifting in diction, tone, line-lengths and chronology with virtuoso facility), it radiates poetic eloquence and rhythmic verve as it follows the renegade’s life and the various historic figures (Alfred Kinsey, Thornton Wilder, Gertrude Stein to name but three) who came into this life. A tour de force hyper-erotic odyssey.
