Books Acquired Recently: All Queer Edition

Brolaski, Julian T. Gowanus Atropolis. Brooklyn: Ugly Duckling Presse, 2011.

Someone on one of the panels I attended at the recent MLA Convention mentioned this book and the title stuck in my head. Then about a week ago I was reading Heid E. Erdrich’s anthology New Poets of Native Nations, which includes some poems from Brolaski’s book. I enjoyed them, so decided to buy the collection.

Moraga, Cherríe L. Loving in the War Years: Lo Que Nunca Pasó por Sus Labios. 2nd ed. Cambridge, MA: South End Press, 2000.

This is a queer Latinx feminist classic that is sadly out of print. I have been looking for a reasonably-priced copy for some time and finally found one online.

Pico, Tommy. Nature Poem. Portland, OR: Tin House Books, 2017.

I have heard Pico’s name but did not encounter his work until reading Erdrich’s anthology. I loved the pieces I read and decided to order one of his books immediately.
