THE LETTER Q: QUEER WRITERS’ NOTES TO THEIR YOUNGER SELVES

395.00

IF YOU RECEIVED A LETTER FROM YOUR OLDER SELF, WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WOULD SAY?

That the boy you were crushing on in History turns out to be gay too, and that you become boyfriends in college? That your mother, who’s so freaked about you being lesbian now, will one day make the wedding cake for you and your girlfriend? That the bully who is making your life miserable will one day become so insignificant that you won’t remember his name until he shows up at your book signing and asks for your autograph?

In this anthology, sixty-four award-winning authors such as Michael Cunningham, Amy Bloom, Jacqueline Woodson, Gregory Maguire, David Levithan, and Armistead Maupin make imaginative journeys into their pasts, telling their younger selves what they would have liked to know then about their lives as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender people. Through stories, in pictures, with bracing honesty, these are words of love and understanding, reasons to hold on for the better future ahead. They will tell you things about your favorite authors that you never knew before. And they will tell you about yourself.

Carry this book with you. Read it when you’re having a difficult time, when you are feeling sad, insecure or angry. Read it when you feel hopeful and happy. And someday – truly it is not as far away as it seems – you will be able to add your own letter to the collection.
