There’s no such thing as autobiography,
there’s only art and lies.

Queer Lit in 2011

Band of Thebes provides some of my favorite queer book commentary. In the article linked here, he discusses the "handful" of queer letters included in recent nominations. That handful includes some mediocre representation, i.e. Michael Cunningham's Nightfall. The Room by Emma Donoghue received the most attention. This book sat on me like a fat man full of contrivance.
