Cassandra Troyan: Throne of Blood

Solar Luxuriance

Availability: In stock



Cassandra Troyan is an artist and writer who investigates the supposedly hidden structures of our desires by rendering visible the daily ways we make meaning in the world, and find ourselves in relation to others. She explores the terror of becoming female amidst the accelerated haze of contemporary popular culture, yet derives pleasure from the nascent negation produced through absurd juxtapositions of submission, surrender, romance, and horror.
THRONE OF BLOOD is her poetic novella.


“This book will disturb you to the same degree that you should have been disturbed before you read it. Cassandra Troyan's aphoristic poems reminded me that things are grimmer and life is sadder and filthier than I have will to believe, no matter how often I hear about Jersey Shore. Troyan fills her cup with blood and mucous and says "take, drink." She says, "The body is meat. The meat has feels." Her narratives form a feedback loop with the sound a human brain makes as she squishes it under her boot. She can be as abject as Bataille or as sick as Cèline, but through it all, maybe best of all, she is also funny.”
