Dandy Darkly Book Launch Image

 

NYC’s maestro of the macabre is dragging his tawdry tales of sex and death from the stage and on to the page. Dandy Darkly will be on hand at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division to sell some books, sign some books and do a selected reading of tales from his brand new book, and to kick off his upcoming USA tour.

Dandy Darkly’s Six Hundred and Sixty-Six Tales of Sex and Death! (Volume One) is a collection of short stories from Dandy’s critically acclaimed, queer storytelling shows. The book also features illustrations by Dandy Darkly. The shindig kicks off at 7pm with a reading of Dandy’s favorite tales at 8pm.

 

Dandy Darkly lives in Brooklyn, New York with his husband and cats. “The Homer of the 21st century” (Washington Square News), Dandy is an emergent queer performance artist and cabaret storyteller. He has performed internationally at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the London Horror Festival and the historic Royal Vauxhall Tavern. The East Village is Dandy’s playground, with annual shows at Under St. Marks, the Queerly Festival and Dixon Place. His critically acclaimed work has been described as “fantastical fairytale horror, equal parts Tennessee Williams, Edgar Allen Poe and Bruce La Bruce” (Time Out) and “a cross between Pam Ayres, Liberace and Tales from the Crypt.” (The Scotsman). This “decidedly wicked storyteller” (New York Times) is “simply one of the most thoughtful, hilarious and harrowing queer talents at work today.” (Scotsgay Magazine).
