“Magnetic nonfiction.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

“Remarkable perception . . . [a] particular meditation/investigation. . . . Jerome Charyn the unpredictable, elusive, and enigmatic is a ordinary fit for Emily Dickinson, the quintessence of these.” —Joyce Carol Oates, writer of Wild Nights! and The misplaced Landscape

We imagine we all know Emily Dickinson: the Belle of Amherst, virginal, reclusive, and probably mad. yet in A Loaded Gun, Jerome Charyn introduces us to another Emily Dickinson: the fierce, significant, and sexually charged poet who wrote:

My existence had stood—a Loaded Gun—
…
Though I than He— may perhaps longer live
He longer must—than I—
For i've got however the energy to kill,
Without—the strength to die—


Through interviews with modern students, shut readings of Dickinson’s correspondence and handwritten manuscripts, and a suggestive, newly stumbled on picture that's alleged to exhibit Dickinson along with her lover, Charyn’s literary sleuthing finds the good poet in ways in which have purely been hinted at formerly: as a lady who used to be deeply philosophical, intensely engaged with the area, interested in individuals of either sexes, and ready to write poetry that disturbs and delights us today.

Jerome Charyn is the writer of, such a lot lately, Bitter Bronx: 13 Stories, I Am Abraham: a unique of Lincoln and the Civil War, and The mystery lifetime of Emily Dickinson: A Novel. He lives in New York.
