By Scott Herring
The city has been the close to specific concentration of queer students and queer cultures in the US. Asking us to appear past the towns at the coasts, Scott Herring attracts a brand new map, monitoring how rural queers have replied to this myopic approach. Interweaving quite a lot of disciplines—art, media, literature, functionality, and type studies—he develops a longer critique of the way metronormativity saturates LGBTQ politics, art, and feedback. To counter this perfect, he deals a colourful thought of queer anti-urbanism that refuses to brush aside the agricultural as a cultural backwater.
Impassioned and provocative, Another Country expands the chances of queer reports past its urban limits. Herring leads his readers from faeries within the rural Midwest to images of white supremacists within the deep South, from Roland Barthes’s obsession with Parisian model to a picture memoir through Alison Bechdel set within the Appalachian Mountains, and from cubist work in Lancaster County to lesbian separatist communes at the northern California coast. the result's a wholly unique account of ways queer stories can—and should—get to a different country.
