Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Tea writes with a raw-hearted, wry but wide-eyed ebullience, rendering dyke bohemia with intense, gritty, glittering romanticism.”—The San Francisco Bay Guardian

Before penning her contemporary classic Valencia, Tea wrote wonderfully honest narrative poems, which she self-published in small editions, now collected here for the first time. A San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2004 and a Lambda Literary Award finalist.

Synopsis:

Collected poems of Michelle Tea.

Synopsis:

Michelle Tea ran away to San Francisco in the early '90s. There she found a home in open mic venues, and self-published a steady stream of very limited edition photocopied poetry chapbooks, which are available in a single volume for the first time in "The Beautiful Reflective themes of unrequired love and languor, hopes and heartbreak, prostitution and destitution fill every page with immediately accessible narrative lines.

Leslie Joseph, January 2, 2007 (view all comments by Leslie Joseph)
