This collection of essays (written by a phenomenal poet) is smart, intricate and incredibly well written. It's a short read, but it now lives next to my favorite poetic reference books on my bookshelf. Most of the essays center around gender, ethnicity, nationhood and the intersectionality of all three as they relate to the author's identity as a Queer Native American. The essays are deeply personal and thought-provoking. I devoured this book. If you enjoy Mary Ruefle or Maggie Nelson, you'll love this book!
