Don't miss the first Outcast Novel by Keri Arthur, CITY OF LIGHT Available now
from Signet Select It was the whispering of the ghosts that woke me. Istretched
the kinks out of my bones, then glanced at the old metal clock on the far wall to
confirm what I instinctively knew. It was barely six p.m., so night hadn't fallen yet.
The ghosts were well used to my seminocturnal patterns, so something had to be

“Since we missed our primary extraction, we go back to Lebanon, get a boat, and
sail to Cyprus,” Alex said. “Just like our E— and-E plan.” Alex finished lowering
the rowboat into the water. The Outcasts piled in, and Pancho rowed. Using the
digital compass on his Casio Pathfinder watch, Alex helped navigate. Pancho
rowed over large swells. They were lucky the weather was calm. Gradually, the
dark sky in front of them became lighter as city lights on the coast emerged—

Instead of cities of light soaring toward heaven, much of the twentyfirstcentury
urban world squats in squalor, surrounded by pollution, excrement, and decay.66
The majority of the inhabitants of the contemporary city are thus the “new
wretched of the earth”, an “outcast proletariat” that is “not a socialized collectivity
of labor” (emphasis in the original).67 At the same time, Davis concedes that this
outcast proletariat” does possess “yet unmeasured powers of subverting urban

And so in their poetry and novels they extolled the outcasts. Ginsberg was
especially outspoken and unapologetic about his homosexuality and never
missed an opportunity to celebrate it. In October 1955 he electrified the
underground scene when he performed his poem “Howl” at the Six Gallery in
San Francisco. “I greet you at the beginning of a great career,” fellow poet and
publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti cabled Ginsberg after the performance.10 When

An Echo Park Novel (City Lights Noir) Elizabeth Stromme. through life, I know
what others may say of such a union. There are those who would not approve of

the life of Ahmad (Nissim) Susa (1900–1982), an Iraqi Jewish historian who in
the 1930s opted to convert to Islam and whose work ended up being used as Ba'
thist propaganda during Saddam Hussein's reign. See also Aline Schlaepfer, '
