How I Became One of the Invisible, New Edition

By David Rattray
Edited by Chris Kraus
Preface by Rachel Kushner
Afterword by Robert Dewhurst

The only collection of Rattray’s prose: essays that offer a kind of secret history and guidebook to a poetic and mystical tradition.

In order to become one of the invisible, it is necessary to throw oneself into the arms of God… Some of us stayed for weeks, some for months, some forever.—from How I Became One of the Invisible

Compiled in the months before his untimely death at age 57, How I Became One of the Invisible is the only volume of Rattray’s prose. This new edition, edited by Robert Dewhurst, includes five additional pieces, two of them previously unpublished.
