LGBTQ Fiction and Poetry from Appalachia

Writers Dorothy Allison, Silas House, Ann Pancake, and many more contributed to this unprecedented collection, which explores what it means to be Appalachian and queer. Like much Appalachian literature, their work showcases family and the region's mountains, but it is also fraught with the conflict that's too often present when you're LGBTQ and Appalachian. The collection confronts the complex intersections of place, family, sexuality, gender, and religion. This book is paperback.
