The Selvage: Poems, Linda Gregerson
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2012
A magnificent new collection from National Book Award finalist, Linda Gregerson.
The Selvage is the boldest evidence yet that Linda Gregerson’s unique combination of dramatic lyricism and fierce intelligence transcends current fashions to claim an enduring place in American poetry.
Linda Gregerson’s awards include a Guggenheim fellowship, an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award, four Pushcart Prizes, and a Kingsley Tufts Award. She is the Caroline Walker Bynum Distinguished University Professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
How to be Gay, David Halperin
Cambridge, MA: the Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2012
“A pioneer of LGBTQ studies dares to suggest that gayness is a way of being that gay men must learn from one another to become who they are. The genius of gay culture resides in some of its most despised stereotypes - aestheticism, snobbery, melodrama, glamour, caricatures of women, and obsession with mothers – and in the social meaning of style.”
David Halperin is an American theorist in the fields of gender studies, queer theory, critical theory, material culture and visual culture.
Dr. Halperin is W.H. Auden Distinguished University Professor of the History and Theory of Sexuality atthe University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
In collaboration with the U-M Department of English Language and Literature
