Sean Kilpatrick Books and Links


Phones dole out autocorrected assaults, accusers online are hunted by a genocidal hit squad bent on introducing the realities of tangible abuse. A couple at the worst end of a relationship stumble across this group's genocidal ideologue, running direly afoul of the accumulative issues fly-papered below him...but there are secrets far scarier than even the worst despot could dream up. A Grand Guignol, Theatre of Cruelty style outrage screenplay for the heyday.

“Like it got transmitted from a weird dimension where Shakespeare was trying to write a spec script for Joel Silver. I like the language and have no idea what's going on.” --Outlaw Vern, author of Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal

“Sean Kilpatrick is one of America’s greatest living writers, our Beckett, our Trocchi, eating and destroying and repurposing forms and words and sentences only to vomit them back still caked in bile. The answer to a swift, totalitarian capitalist machine, Sir William Forsythe’s Freebase Nuptials is a screenplay written from within the devil’s ass of the United States, a Pasolini’s-fascist monologue accompanied by 90s oily bravado. I haven’t read anything so hopeful since Sucker June.”—Grant Maierhofer, author of Flamingos and Gag

“Sean Kilpatrick’s writing guts open the gorgeous holes of what gapes when words become abandoned cities at night, film projectors of hellfire sermons, and the healing spasms of poetic revelation.”—Jamie Grefe, author of Static/Orgone

“Kilpatrick’s prose is the aural equivalent of anthrax cut with ecstasy. All other writing makes me sick. Here at last is one so nasty it’s almost like there’s hope.”
- Blake Butler
