Whistlejacket

American Literature Series
John Hawkes

While investigating his mentor’s life and death, Michael, a voyeuristic fashion photographer, travels through a Dionysian landscape where sex is daydream, women and horses share the same erotic power, and perversity is the rule. In his search, Michael uses photographs and paintings to visualize the past and thereby expose a family’s decadent legacy of sex, lies, and betrayal.

An inventive mix of biography, history, erotica, and classic whodunit, Whistlejacket is John Hawkes at his best as he blurs the distinction between death and desire, image and language, art and morality.
