Books Acquired Recently

Cuadros, Gil. City of God. San Francisco: City Lights Books, 1994.

I recently read about this book dealing with the AIDS epidemic and decided to buy it because of its use of multiple genres.

Hancock, Ange-Marie. Intersectionality: An Intellectual History. New York: Oxford University Press, 2016.

Intersectionality is an important concept in my current writing project so I am trying to read a lot of recent scholarship on it, and thus bought this book. I am about half way through it and thus far it has been helpful.

Hardy, Janet W., and Dossie Easton. The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships, and Other Freedoms in Sex and Love. 3rd ed. California: Ten Speed Press, 2017.

I know people who are poly and I have read several novels depicting poly relationships but I have read very little nonfiction about it. I have recently read several pieces of scholarship that reference poly manuals to explore the idea of being theoretically poly–that is, using ideas from different academic disciplines in one’s work–so I decided to buy one because such an approach is an emphasis in my current project.

Moore, Carley. 16 Pills: Essays. Red Wing, MN: Tinderbox Editions, 2018.

I recently read Moore’s new novel The Not Wives and loved it; it was possibly the best book I’ve read this year. Therefore, I decided to order her recent essay collection.

Pérez, Laura E. Eros Ideologies: Writings on Art, Spirituality, and the Decolonial. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2019.

I got a promotional email about this book from the publisher and ordered it right away because my current project focuses on the intersection between religion and writing, which is a kind of art.
