Peter Dube


Peter Dubé is a novelist, short story writer, essayist and cultural critic. He is the author of the chapbook Vortex Faction Manifesto (Vortex Editions, 2001), the novel Hovering World (DC Books 2002), At the Bottom of the Sky, a collection of linked short stories (DC Books, 2007) and most recently, the novella Subtle Bodies: a Fantasia on Voice, History and René Crevel (Lethe Press 2010). He is also the editor of the anthology Madder Love: Queer Men and The Precincts of Surrealism (Rebel Satori Press, 2008).

His fiction — informed by surrealism, queer and “popular” cultures, as well as a whole host of heretical and apocalyptic visions — deploys dense verbal surfaces to investigate the narrative construction of experience, particularly at the points where imagination, desire and the body politic intersect. In other words, his writing is often weird, sweaty and lush.
