Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic
by Alison Bechdel
Staff Pick
Fun Home, in concert with Craig Thompson's Blankets, was one of the works that proved to my doubting eyes that graphic novels could reach heights every bit as poetic, moving, and magical as the finest prose. Darkly funny but wholly sincere, the story of... (read more)

Giovanni's Room (Vintage International)
Giovanni's Room (Vintage International)
by James Baldwin
Staff Pick
It would be difficult to talk about James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room and not touch on the simple fact that this slim novel, published in 1956, is mainly a love story between two men. It seems impossible to think such a thing could be published pre... (read more)

Time of the Doves (81 Edition)

Possible Side Effects
Possible Side Effects
by Augusten Burroughs

As with other funny memoirists like Laurie Notaro or David Rakoff, Augusten Burroughs finds humor and absurdity in all sorts of mundane events. The twist is that Burroughs life — particularly his childhood — provides the surreal backdrop to a writer... (read more)

Rose of No Man's Land
Rose of No Man's Land
by Michelle Tea
Staff Pick
Michelle Tea, a long-time favorite with streetwise memoir readers, proved she could pull off a novel with Rose of No Man's Land. It's like Freaks and Geeks with lesbians. Tea's writing dazzles and hurts in all the right places and her comic timing has... (read more)

The Sluts
The Sluts
by Dennis Cooper
Staff Pick
Dennis Cooper's The Sluts is addictive in a very disturbing way; it creates as much self-reflection as it does analysis of the characters and their fantasies. The sex described is brutal and graphic and unreal and maybe none of it ever happens and maybe... (read more)

Nightwood
Nightwood
by Djuna Barnes
Staff Pick
There's no denying that Nightwood is a demanding text. In her preface, Jeanette Winterson aptly writes of Djuna Barnes's prose: "You can slide into it, because the prose has a narcotic quality, but you can't slide over it." When given the attention it... (read more)

Exile in Guyville: How a Punk Rock Redneck Faggot Texan Moved to West Hollywood and Refused to Be Shiny and Happy
by Dave White
Staff Pick
Dave White (of Movies.com, among other sites) is my favorite movie reviewer, and when I heard he had written a book about his move from Texas to Hollywood I had to read it. Exile in Guyville is a collection of his emails home to family and friends... (read more)
