Chavisa is an original.You get to know a lot about growing up an outsider - a lesbian and in your face - in rural middle-America. Her stories are gentle and kind in that when you get your throat slit by her prose you don't feel any pain and you slip away without knowing it.
She was preceded by the poet Steve Dalachinsky, reading from his soon to be published 2nd revised and expanded edition of his book A Superintendent's Eyes - with photos by yours truly.
Steve's a contemporary Walt Whitman, but instead of hearing America sing, he hears America groan.
Both books are published by Autonomedia.
And both authors are Unbearables
