Enns, Victor. Love & Surgery. Regina, SK: Radiant Press, 2019.
Enns has played an important role in the Mennonite literary scene because he was the founder and sometimes editor of Rhubarb, the journal of the Mennonite Literary Society. I have not read his earlier work, which dates back to Turnstone Press’s chapbook days of the late 1970s, but decided to buy his latest collection because it is in part about his divorce, a subject that has affected my own life. I began reading it as soon as it came in the mail and it is an excellent book.
Wheitner, Dave. The Snuggle Party Guidebook: Create Deeper Friendships, Decrease Loneliness, & Enjoy Nurturing Touch Community. Portland, OR: Divergent Drummer Publications, 2014.
I have heard of snuggle parties, sometimes also known as cuddle parties, but know very little about them. They seem like a queer subject, so I decided to buy this book to learn more.
