Books Acquired Recently: All Queer Edition

Browne, Kath, Jason Lim, and Gavin Brown, eds. Geographies of Sexualities: Theory, Practices and Politics. Aldershot, UK: Ashgate Publishing, 2007.

I am thinking about a project on queer space in fiction and am thus looking for theory on queer geography. This collection looks like it will be a good start. I purchased it from Thriftbooks via amazon.com.

Chen, Ching-In. recombinant. Berkeley, CA: Kelsey Street Press, 2017.

I read Chen’s first book, a novel in poems, last week and loved it, so decided to buy their most recent book. I believe I’ve read a few poems from it in anthologies. I purchased it and Greenwell’s book from amazon.com.

Greenwell, Garth. What Belongs to You. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016.

I recently read Greenwell’s novella Mitko and loved it, so decided to buy this novel.

Books Acquired Recently

Delany, Samuel R. Voyage, Orestes! [A Surviving Novel Fragment]. Whitmore Lake, MI: Bamberger Books, 2019.

This fragment of  Delany’s legendary long-lost novel just came out. As I’ve written here a number of times before, I am obsessed with his work, so I purchased it immediately from amazon.com.

Gatchalian, C.E. Double Melancholy: Art, Beauty, and the Making of a Brown Queer Man. Vancouver: Arsenal Pulp Press, 2019.

I have been reading lots of queer memoirs lately as research for my own writing. This book looks to be similar to my own project, a mix of memoir and scholarship, thus I am hopeful that it will be a helpful model. I purchased it directly from the publisher.

Green, Karen. Bough Down. Los Angeles: Siglio Press, 2013.

I bought this book because it is by David Foster Wallace’s widow. It is another hybrid memoir with lots of illustrations. The book itself is beautiful. I purchased it and Greenwell’s book online from Powell’s because I am trying to shop less at amazon. I didn’t realize until writing this entry that both authors’ names begin with Green, an interesting synchronicity.

Greenwell, Garth. Mitko. Oxford, OH: Miami University Press, 2011.

I saw Greenwell speak at AWP last month. I had not heard of him before but was enthralled by his speech and decided to seek out his work.

Rivers, Karen. A Possibility of Whales. Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Young Readers, 2018.

I got this book as a reward for being one of Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian‘s Patreon supporters. I have not encountered Rivers’s work before but look forward to reading it.
