When Assotto Saint died at the age of 36 in 1994, he had already created a body of work--essays, poems, plays--that changed gay male literature. Spells of a Voodoo Doll collects all of Saint's published and unpublished work and brings it to a broader reading public who has long had to make do with hard-to-find out of print chap books and old magazines. Saint's vision is flamboyant, intense, wickedly comic, and impassioned. He draws upon his Haitian heritage, music, incantations, and radical politics to weave together a tapestry of literature that celebrates life in the face of death and embraces politics as a way to change the world.
