Read full description of the books Triads:In 1937, two young boys escape their cruel Peking Opera training and hit the streets of Hong Kong. Rescued by a foppish half-breed aesthete, they travel to prewar Shanghai to run a mysterious errand for a shadow criminal organization…but then the Japanese bomb China, and everything goes terribly wrong.
In 1945, Nan Blake is a hardboiled Hollywood writer with a secret…she isn’t the man her beautiful starlet girlfriend believes her to be. Who is the mysterious Chinese stuntman hiding in the background, and why does he want to help her?
In modern-day Los Angeles, Jake Ryan is poised at the brink of a promising action-movie career…but what if his studio finds out he’s gay, and why does he keep seeing that strange, ghostly Chinese man?
Read information about the authorPoppy Z. Brite (born Melissa Ann Brite, now going by Billy Martin) is an American author born in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Born a biological female, Brite has written and talked much about his gender dysphoria/gender identity issues. He self-identifies almost completely as a homosexual male rather than female, and as of 2011 has started taking testosterone injections. His male name is Billy Martin.
He lived in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Athens, Georgia prior to returning to New Orleans in 1993. He loves UNC basketball and is a sometime season ticket holder for the NBA, but he saves his greatest affection for his hometown football team, the New Orleans Saints.
Brite and husband Chris DeBarr, a chef, run a de facto cat rescue and have, at any given time, between fifteen and twenty cats. Photos of the various felines are available on the "Cats" page of Brite's website. They have been known to have a few dogs and perhaps a snake as well in the menagerie. They are no longer together.
During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Brite at first opted to stay at home, but he eventually abandoned New Orleans and his cats and relocated 80 miles away to his mother's home in Mississippi. He used his blog to update his fans regarding the situation, including the unknown status of his house and many of his pets, and in October 2005 became one of the first 70,000 New Orleanians to begin repopulating the city.
In the following months, Brite has been an outspoken and sometimes harsh critic of those who are leaving New Orleans for good. He was quoted in the New York Times and elsewhere as saying, in reference to those considering leaving, "If you’re ever lucky enough to belong somewhere, if a place takes you in and you take it into yourself, you don't desert it just because it can kill you. There are things more valuable than life."
