Week in Links: Blake Baily vs Batwoman

Posted on 11. Jul, 2010 by in News

  • This week, the Bisexual Examiner, Sheela Lambert, surveys biographer Blake Bailey about his book, Cheever: A Life — a comprehensive look at author John Cheever, whom Bailey calls, “perhaps the greatest American short-story writer of his generation.” The biography was published in 2009 by Knopf and was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award in Bisexual Nonfiction in May. Bailey’s responses are so fascinating I had to re-read my copy of “The Swimmer” to hunt for bisexual angles. [via Examiner.com]
  • Autostraddle’s recommendations for “books that you can read this summer without feeling like a jerk/feminist traitor” includes S. Bear Bergman’s Lambda Award Finalist, The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You, and a triad of Lorrie Moore titles. [via Autostraddle]
  • Emanuel Xavier (If Jesus Were Gay), Gonzalo Alburto (El Diario/La Prensa editor)  and Charlie Vazquez (Contraband) Celebrate Gay Latino Pride at B&N Upper West Side. [via Band of Thebes]
  • DC’s comic’s new Jewish lesbian Batwoman (aka socialite Kate Kane) debuted last week in “Batwoman Elegy: Deluxe Edition” (DC Comics: $24.99) with an introduction from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. [via Jacket Copy]
  • Dorothy Snarker comments on Wonder Woman’s updated fashion choices, while Prism’s Queer Eye writer Ed Natcher puts his spin on the recent Jim Lee redesign. [via After Ellen, via Prism Comics]
