From Library Journal:

Matthew Shepard, a gentle, petite 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was found tied to a fence outside Laramie on a chilly October morning in 1998, the victim of a brutal gay bashing. His subsequent death enraged gays everywhere and forced millions of other Americans to confront the ugly realities of homophobic hate crimes. For this tribute, GibsonAa student in the Naropa Institute's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied PoeticsAhas brought together distinguished writers like John Ashbery, Star Black, W.S. Merwin, and Harold Norse. The poets balance elegiac sadness with righteous anger. The best of these poems are beautifully, gravely haunting; the worst come off as saccharine or lachrymose. But despite its high quality and poignancy, this book is more appropriate for those who wish to have a personal remembrance of Matthew Shepard than for most library collections. An optional purchase for large public libraries and popular gay studies collections.ARichard Violette, Special Libs. Cataloging, Inc., Victoria, BC
