From poetry to his trademark artisanal pulp fiction, from memoirs of travel to memoirs of seduction, Dean Kyte’s literary œuvre ranges wide—and so does his style.

The quintessence of this versatile writer’s style is Dean’s love of language—the abstract beauty of words on the page.

Whether he is weaving the dense, epic sentences of Orpheid: L’Arrivée, full of multilingual neologisms, or the sharp, staccato sentences of Things we do for Love and Follow Me, My Lovely…, bristling with flashy, hardboiled argot, one thing is for sure: Dean Kyte is a poet in prose.

And as the leading contemporary translator of the poetry of Charles Baudelaire and Michelangelo Buonarroti, it is clear his love of language is not just reserved for English.
