Song of Myself: A Novel is a gay man's odyssey of self-discovery. It is the story of Daniel Dell Blake, a gay man navigating his way through a tumultuous twentieth-century America. His rites of passage, including embracing his identity, garnering self-respect, and living with irrepressible creativity, will resonate for readers confronting today's culture wars. Daniel’s struggles against societal norms, infused with wit, celebrate human resilience while offering historical insight, punctuated throughout by quotes from Walt Whitman, whose life and writings serve as a touchstone—to the narrator and to the reader—a testament to how truth and pride, and even humble efforts in the midst of monumental events become (in Whitman’s words) “the journey-work of the stars.”
