“Make It Be Spring!”

Here’s a list of new LGBT-relevant books to help us cope with the impending winter storms. From Homo Thugs to Shakesqueer, we’ve got it all.

Kelley Eskridge‘s acclaimed novel, Solitaire (Small Beer), was reissued late last month and we hope to bring you a Q&A soon. Reality TV-show star Tabatha Coffey has a new memoir It’s Not Really About the Hair (!t). Read our review.

In time for Black History Month, Victoria Brownworth‘s new imprint Tiny Satchel published a collection of stories, Where We Sit, featuring Jewelle Gomez, Mecca Jamilah Sullivan, Craig L. Gidney, and Fiona Lewis among others.

One Response to “New in February UPDATED”

    Thanks, Antonio for including Lethe titles.

    One tiny error – Blame it on the Raging Hormones is actually fiction (yes, the author just turned 21, but he assures me the drama is fictional).
