About the Author:

Emanuel Xavier is the author of the poetry collection Americano, editor of Bullets & Butterflies: queer spoken word poetry, and Mariposas: A Modern Anthology of Queer Latino Poetry, and his work has appeared in the James White Review, Genre and Best Gay Erotica. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, he lives in Bushwick and continues to work as a spoken word poet.

Review:

Christ Like is the harrowing first novel by Emanuel Xavier. When it was first published ten years ago, it announced the arrival of a unique and important new voice among both gay and Latino/a writers. Ten years later, the novel retains its compelling power as it takes the reader on a jagged journey though the New York club scene; in theme and naked urgency, it may be justly compared to Dancer from the Dance and Last Exit to Brooklyn, but its heartbeat is puro latino. --Michael Nava, author of The Little Death and Rag and Bone

Realistic and refreshing, Xavier s characters are flawed and feigning, and capable of making the reader both fear them and feel for them simultaneously. --Book Marks

With Christ Like, Xavier demonstrates the literary splendor and heroic telling of Piri Thomas and Junot Diaz...Like the people that it represents, Christ Like is full of wit, charm, attitude, and resilience. This ain t no sad song. This is the story of how a rock can turn itself into a gem. --Lambda Book Report
