Kevin Killian has written three novels, Shy (1989), Arctic Summer (1997), and Spreadeagle (2012), a book of memoirs, Bedrooms Have Windows (1990), and three books of stories, Little Men (1996), I Cry Like a Baby (2001), and Impossible Princess (2009).  He has also written three books of poetry, Argento Series (2001), Action Kylie (2008), and Tweaky Village (2014). Killian is a leading figure of the so-called “New Narrative” movement, a loosely organized group of writers with a common project: the infusion of prose fiction with the theoretical insights of experimental poetry in our time. New projects include Nude, a book in collaboration with New York-based artist Ugo Rondinone, a book of Killian’s intimate photographs, Tagged 2, a collection of New Narrative writing (Writers Who Love Too Much, from Nightboat Books) edited with Dodie Bellamy, and a revival of his 1994 play Life After Prince in San Francisco at the Minnesota Street Projects.

Kevin Killian is a contributor to Nerve Lantern issue 3 and suppl. issue 1.
