Told in haunting prose, this is the story of Brian Crowley, the King of the Dust Mites. As he squats in an abandoned Vermont cabin, Brian tells us the story of his breakdown. He tells us of his notebooks where he records every person with whom he speaks or has ever spoken. He tells us of his friend James, a junkie on the lam from a drug charge, and how they found refuge at a broken down farm in Pennsylvania, a place visited over the years by "acid casualties and schizophrenics and idealists and drug war refugees." Disturbing and beautiful, King of the Dust Mites is a portrayal of madness and redemption, a tale of desperation and survival. M. Jarrett Wilson is the author of Edge Play X and several novellas.
