Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Jon-Henri Damski shows why he was one of the first writers in America to come out queer a dozen years ago. In essays which cut across culture, religion and politics, he marks the liberation movement in his own life, from academic, to gay writer, to queer thinker. Introduced by Neal Pollack, who writes: "I didn't always understand everything Jon-Henri said, or everything he wrote. Like his schizo mind, his writing sometimes goes off on odd tangents. Secret shards of knowledge burst out, seemingly disconnected to the previous paragraph. Popular references get knocked off-center by the obscure, by what was unspoken."
