Poet and author Dennis Milam Bensie tackles the work of Salinger and thirty-nine other famous authors, including Melville, Dickens, Tolstoy, Twain, and Forrester, and mashes them up into his own concoctions. These poems offer intriguing snippets of gay life, from cruising bears to Log Cabin Republicans, to youths subjected to sexual conversion therapy. Every poem in FLIT: A Poetry Mashup of Classic Literature is built entirely with words from one classic book or play.
