Grace Lavery’s Reading List of Queer Treasures

"There’s another truth, which is that queer lives have long been central to literary writing too, both as the subjects of fantasy for writers living under compulsory heterosexuality, and as remnants of the queer world outside the family home—the world that art allows us to access, assemble, and manifest."

We still tend to think of queer literature as having been consigned to the margins of literary history, before the successful liberation of queer writers in the last half century. There is somethin…

Our Book of the Day is "Fault Lines" by Meena Alexander (The Feminist Press). Meena Alexander (1951 – 2018) was an Indian American writer, poet, and scholar. Born in India and raised in India and Sudan, she later lived in New York City, where she was a Distinguished Professor of English at Hunter College. In her perceptive and lyrical memoir "Fault Lines," she explores the role of writing, memory, and place in a post-9/11 world. If you'd like to read an "evocative and moving" memoir (Publishers Weekly) that follows one woman’s evolution as a writer at home and in exile, call us on 512-322-2097 or stop by the store, 12-5pm today (please note, we're closed tomorrow and January 1st).

Three books I loved. As the genre demands, Sarah Schulman’s “Maggie Terry” (The Feminist Press, 2018) is a whodunit, but somehow the murder doesn’t steer the plot, as the real mystery is whether Maggie can handle the next hour, minute, thought, sober. The book also nods to themes of guilt and victimhood, but in the end, what crackles is a newly gentrified New York. The story of “Mercury Retrograde” (Deluge books, 2020) by Emily Segal follows our twentysomething narrator in the mid-2010s as she accepts a job at eXe, a startup that “had to do with creating a meta-layer of language all over the web, like a sandwich.” Segal’s New York is sleek and young, and capitalism is naturally the sun. “Stage of Recovery” (Divided Publishing ltd, 2021) by Giorgia Sagri consists of a collection of texts: poems, internal Occupy correspondence, essays on her performance and care work spanning a decade. Sagri is at her core an anarchist, hyperaware of the bureaucratization of action. Her words ring with the charred vibrations of a voice exhausted by yelling, always agitating the webs of power that bind energy: art institutions, decision-making apparati, occupations, friendships.

Join us TODAY (12/20) at 6 PM EST on Zoom for a talk with Mary L. Gray on "“Ghost Work in Pandemic Times." In the recent book she co-authored, 𝘎𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘬: 𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘰 𝘚𝘵𝘰𝘱 𝘚𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘤𝘰𝘯 𝘝𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘺 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘉𝘶𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢 𝘕𝘦𝘸 𝘎𝘭𝘰𝘣𝘢𝘭 𝘜𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘴, Mary L. Gray exposes the invisible human workforce that powers the web. The reliance on on-demand workers to help AI systems run, Gray argues, has only increased during the pandemic, further eroding full-time employment and benefits. Will the post-COVID society create new forms of ghost work, or can technical innovation assist and empower human labor, such as that of trusted health care workers? Gray—a 2020 MacArthur Fellow, a senior principal researcher at Microsoft Research, and a faculty associate at Harvard University—addresses these urgent questions.
