THE LITERARY PARTY: GROWING UP GAY AND AMISH IN AMERICA
by JAMES SCHWARTZ
Poet James Schwartz combines a mixture of poetry and short stories to describe family troubles, lost love, religion, and even what it's like to take a horse and buggy to a gay nightclub. The Literary Party is an emotional, touching book with implications that extend to any religion or culture where intolerance is prevalent.
Cities have no accommodation for Amish hitching rails. Joe had to tether his horse and buggy several blocks from the gay bar. @queeraspoetry— Seven By Twenty (archive only) (@7x20) January 31, 2012
