Staff Reviews


This republication of two collections, Normal Sex (1994) and Home in three days. Don't wash. (1996), begins with letters between Samuel Ace and Linda Smukler, his dead name. Sam and Linda write to each other in what might be the most beautiful, tender communion between selves I have ever witnessed. Read this book for the introduction alone.

Description


Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. MEET ME THERE is a paired republication of Normal Sex (Firebrand Books, 1994) and Home in three days. Don't wash. (Hard Press, 1996). In the present edition, the texts are accompanied by a new introduction and poem by Samuel Ace, and by a collection of short essays and reflections on Ace and Smukler's poetics. MEET ME THERE brings together Ace/Smukler's remarkable explorations of the interplay of language, desire, sex, and identity, and repositions this work, 25 years later, in the midst of burgeoning contemporary conversations about gender, sexuality, sociality, language, politics, and poetics. MEET ME THERE is the third work in Belladonna*'s Germinal Texts Series, which seeks to trace feminist avant-garde histories and the poetic lineages they produce.
