9780936085531: Left Bank #3 (Sex,Family,Tribe)

Sex, Family, Tribe displays the stunning art of Lori-ann Latrèmouille on the cover and within, where there are also cartoons by Matt Groening. The list of contributors is truly awesome: Ursula Le Guin, Ken Kesey, Charles Johnson, William Stafford, David duncan, William Kittredge, Evelyn Lau, Omar Castaneda, Colleen McElroy, Lawson Inada, Judith Barrington, Marsha Burns, Duane Niatum, Kathleen Alcalá, Anndee Hochman, Margaret Dragu, Martha Geis, James Aho, Peter Sears, and Doug Marx. Prior to the call for submissions, Blue Heron Publishing organized a series of three salons, beginning with 20-somethings and ending with with oldsters. Much food and beverage was consumed as people got acquainted, then the editors started a discussion about how we might or might not identify ourselves in relationship to the sex, family, and tribe. Then the editors got out of the way and took notes. Each of the three sessions served to inform both the solicitation of the pieces and the editorial decisions about them. Sex, Family, Tribe is the third book in the critically acclaimed Left Bank Book series published from 1991 to 1996. Each title focussed its collection broadly around an often ambiguous theme, i.e., the collections in the series: Writing & Fishing the Northwest; Extinction; Sex, Family, Tribe; Gotta Earn a Living; Kids' Stuff; Head/Waters; Pursuit of Happiness; and Secrets. Elegant prose, fine art, an intriguing range of literary approaches by both established names and exciting newcomers.

From Publishers Weekly:

The Pacific Northwest writers whose work is gathered in this eclectic collection provide new definitions for cliched American values. ``So, how's your lady friend?'' an 89-year-old man asks on the phone; and his lesbian granddaughter questions if he understands his choice of words. From there, Anndee Hochman's memoir/essay moves on to a poignant exploration of the positive and negative terms for lovers and family members. In a delightful story that straddles fact and fiction, Martha Gies describes the West African custom of choosing someone else to replace a deceased parent, and her own process of selecting the infant son of friends to be her ``little father'' and coming to terms with her own father's shortcomings. ``There's something in the air between us, a spark of recognition that might be termed a tribal connection,'' Lawson Fusao Inada says of chance meetings between Japanese, or between Japanese-Americans. Fiction and poetry reinforce the memoirs and essays that form the core of this volume. Also included are an interview with National Book Award winner Charles Johnson and excerpts from recent novels by Ken Kesey, William Kittredge and David James Duncan. Illustrations.
