Soliloquy is a lyric autobiography that details the misadventures, life lessons, and glory moments of an American poet. This tale is a mix of personal history and cultural iconography, slipping from Soupy Sales to Edgar Allen Poe, from Mary Poppins to UFOs, and from comic book superheroes to underground poetry readings.
Battling a depression and anxiety endemic in our time, author Kurt Cline is propelled down a corridor of memory and imagination, having met some of the greatest poets of modern day. He hung out with the Sun Ra Arkestra for an entire evening in a snowed-in Howard Johnson hotel. He shook hands with Patti Smith at the stroke of New Year’s in the Bowery Ballroom of New York City.
This book is the story of a life lived through writing. In a poetic prose work reminiscent of Nabokov, Samuel Beckett, or Dylan Thomas, Cline intertwines strands of vision, emotion, and culture to form a personality-structure that is ultimately able to transcend the limitations of its past and discover a new, improved destiny.
