Impossible PrincessBook - 2009
"Whatever his subject matter, Killian maintains full authority--offering up a homoerotic interpretation of Flannery O'Connor's A Good Man Is Hard to Find and a brilliant imagined history of Hank Williams. Here, under the author's careful control and easygoing charisma, everything seems up for grabs, and almost anything seems possible."-- Time Out New York
