Books Acquired Recently: Metonymy Press Edition

Nixon, Lindsay. nîtisânak. Montreal: Metonymy Press, 2018.

I recently read a review of this hybrid memoir and it sounded fascinating so I decided to buy it. I ordered it directly from Metonymy Press, and while I was on their website I discovered several other intriguing items (well, more than several–they are an explicitly queer press, after all–but I try to keep my book-buying addiction to somewhat reasonable limits), hence the other two books in this post.

Pickle, Oliver. She is Sitting in the Night: Re-visioning Thea’s Tarot. Illustrated by Ruth West. Montreal: Metonymy Press, 2015.

I have been exploring tarot over the past five months after a friend gave me a t-shirt with a tarot card (the Devil) on it. I am especially interested in queer explorations of it, and thus was intrigued to find this book, which re-interprets a classic feminist deck (the reprint of which is also available from Metonymy, and which I bought) from the 1980s in queer ways.

Salah, Trish. Lyric Sexology Vol. 1. 2nd ed. Montreal: Metonymy Press, 2017.

I saw Salah give a talk at MLA in January and have encountered her work in several anthologies. I decided it was finally time for me to delve deeper into her writing.
