“[Thom Gill] is no confessional lyricist nor genuflector at the booth of psychic interiority. He prefers the wiggy infinity of surfaces; he favours the indefinite address: the you, the he, and especially the now…Look around you. Cultivate a boy, a garden, a crush—risk the shame that may remain unredeemed.”

Ecstatic Essays is a series of pamphlets presenting nuanced opinions on obscure topics in arts & culture.

Fan Wu is a writer, student and incurable fantasist living in Toronto. He has published a chapbook of interpretive translations of Chinese poetry (Hoarfrost & Solace) and has edited an anthology of ten translation projects (Himalayan Musk Rambler). He runs a series of critical reading & writing workshops through Art Metropole.
