• Chaz Bono‘s embargoed memoir, Transition, pubs on May 10 — we haven’t seen it yet — it’s a one-day laydown, but we’ll have a review soon. Meanwhile, Michael Schiavi‘s biography of Vito Russo, Celluloid Activist, promises to shed new light on an often overlooked LGBT civil rights pioneer.
  • In fiction, Alex Sanchez — our 2011 Mid-Career Novelist Recipient — has a novel out this month, Boyfriends with Girlfriends. Paul Lisicky — interviewed last week — has a new novel out, The Burning House. And R. Zamora Linmark‘s debut Leche is highly anticipated. In PW last month, Don Weise called it “humorous” and “refreshing.”
  • 2010 Writers’ Retreat Fellow — Laura Hershey‘s posthumous collection, Spark Before Dark, is now available for pre order. While, A Fast Life, the new Tim Dlugos collection also pubs next week.
  • One to watch: Nick Krieger‘s memoir Nina Here Nor There is described as “the next-generation Stone Butch Blues.” Well, Nick, you have our attention.
