Waterfront Journals

£9.99

‘The Waterfront Journals’ is a collection of monologues, each ventriloquising one of the many people whom Wojnarowicz met on his travels throughout America while he was sleeping rough. We meet these down and outs in unassuming locations – in truck stops, bus stations and parks – and taken together their voices form a poignant chorus that distils the desires, dreams and dangers of those people whose lives confined are to the margins.
