Proust Questionnaire: DuVay Knox

DuVay Knox is forging his own path, yet at the same time, paying tribute to the great black pulp writers of the past like Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines.

When a writer finds their voice, authentic and not forced by any trends, or engineered by creative writing workshop professors and their agents, their prose will tend to glow like a briefcase full of gold amongst the manufactured voices trying so hard to sound like a Wallace or a an Updike or a Franzen.

His novel, The Pussy Detective (CLASH BOOKS, 2022) is for the reader that has no hang ups, and is of the mind to devour storytelling that doesn't apologize or pull punches and will make you laugh out loud as it descrambles your brain from today's newspeak invading our daily lives.
