Poetry. LGBT Studies. In GEPHYROMANIA (literally, an addiction to or an obsession with bridges), Tolbert's choice isn't between female and male, lover and self, or loss and relief, but rather to live (willingly, intentionally) in the places where those binaries meet. Questions arise: Is a bridge simply an attempt to connect one (seemingly) stable body back to itself? Whose body—which embodiment—is absent when we say "I miss you"? And who is adored when we say "I love"? Sensing the parallels between a lover who leaves and his own female body as it chooses (as he chooses for it) to recede, the poems in GEPHYROMANIA explore the spaces between, among, across, and even within bodies.

Poetry. Women's Studies. LGBT Studies. Middle Eastern Studies. Introduction by Lisa Robertson. WANTING IN ARABIC is a refusal of convenient silences, convenient stories. The author dwells on the contradictions of a transsexual poetics, in its attendant disfigurations of lyric, ghazal, l'ecriture feminine, and, in particular, her own sexed voice. Without a memory of her father's language, the questions her poems ask are those for a home known through photographs, for a language lost with childhood. Braiding theoretical concerns with the ambivalences of sexed and raced identity, with profound romanticism, WANTING IN ARABIC attempts to traverse the fantasies of foundational loss and aggressive nostalgia in order to further a poetics of a conscious partiality of being, of generous struggle and comic rather than tragic misrecognition.

Speculative fiction is the literature of questions, of challenges and imagination, and what better to question than the ways in which gender and sexuality have been rigidly defined, partitioned off, put in little boxes? These seventeen stories explore the ways in which identity can go beyond binary from space colonies to small college towns, from angels to androids, and from a magical past to other worlds entirely, the authors in this collection have brought to life wonderful tales starring people who proudly define (and redefine) their own genders, sexualities, identities, and so much else in between.

"We sometimes can browse the world but sometimes we need detail. We need to know the ugly why and the beautiful why. The poetic Queer why is often neglected. I believe this anthology will go someway to uncover and decorate our eclectic and diverse wheres and whys. In these increasingly complex times we need to understand why more." -Gerry Potter "When we talk about literature, there are tweets and there are three-volume novels. And, selected poems and collected poems and a poem. There are so many different packages for the same energy to travel through. I think post-identity is sort of a zen concept. You know like, "Wake up " (Smacks hands with a sharp clap). What's the identity of that moment? What's the gender of that moment? There are spots where there is no identity whatsoever. But by the nature of who I am or who any of us are we will need to be in groups that resemble us. It's so crucial to have those identity groups where you gather and are reinforced by your conversations. And don't live there. Something I'm really interested in is how queer identity is like an immigrant group. We need to find each other at various points to say, "God-Iceland " But we don't live in Iceland. I think "post" is a desire to have a little space, but I don't think it's a place where you get to stay." -Eileen Myles
