THE WAY BLOOD TRAVELS by Oliver Slate-Greene
148 x 210mm, 100 pages, black and white printing, perfect bound, 2020
The Way Blood Travels is a story about a trans man whose disembodied youth compels him to leave a small town in Western Massachusetts. After rebuilding a 1969 Mustang and hitting the road, our narrator meets a prostitute from Detroit who introduces him to synthetic testosterone. As he transitions, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery and the body, the United States and all kinds of love. Marked by periods of intense wanderlust and domestic stagnancy, this story is a meditation on what connects us, and is told in a mesmerizing and hypnotic voice. The Way Blood Travels is as much about queerness and masculinity, as it is about reincarnation, magic and time.
