“Magnetic nonfiction.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

“Remarkable perception . . . [a] targeted meditation/investigation. . . . Jerome Charyn the unpredictable, elusive, and enigmatic is a traditional 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, superb, and sexually charged poet who wrote:

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


Through interviews with modern students, shut readings of Dickinson’s correspondence and handwritten manuscripts, and a suggestive, newly came across picture that's alleged to exhibit Dickinson together with her lover, Charyn’s literary sleuthing unearths the good poet in ways in which have merely been hinted at formerly: as a lady who was once deeply philosophical, intensely engaged with the realm, drawn to individuals of either sexes, and ready to write poetry that disturbs and delights us today.

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