Title: I Will Say This Exactly One Time: Essays
Publication Date: 10/8/2015
"These are the kind of lyric essays I love to read: full of intelligence, wit, curiosity, and a profound love of language. A little risky, a little risqué, always provocative and compelling, D. Gilson’s words offer intimate insight into what it means to be human in this world."
- Kim Barnes
"The experience of D. Gilson's I Will Say This Exactly One Time isn't like reading as you've known it, but like taking a long walk with a real person, simultaneously playful, brainy, questioning, sexy, rebellious, heartbroken, kind, and never boring. It's rare to meet a writer this open, this fully himself on the page. He's made a beautiful thing." - Paul Lisicky
