Poetry. LGBT Studies. Steve Fellner is not afraid to be unlikeable, which is precisely why I trust him completely. These are poems of rage and shame, confession in its purest sense--not employed to elicit sympathy or shock but because the stakes are very high: tell the truth or cease to exist. Prepare for journeys to psych wards and ERs; know that your guides will be Miss Piggy and meth, cyberspace and the shadows of the dead. Know, too, that you will meet forms of the divine, and forms of deeply earnest love. Steve Fellner fully understands--especially in his haunting cycle of poems to Matthew Shepard--the distance respect requires, and the intimacy poetry demands--Lia Purpura.
