Overview


Literary Nonfiction. LGBT Studies. "kari's authorial 'signature' undoes the authorial body in favor of a visible obfuscation-strikethru: kari never just signed, but rather crossed out hir name and wrote "NO GENDER." The erasure--well no, the palimpsestic remaking of the name into a symbol for the dismantling of enforced gender codes is a profound and provocative gesture--the name is still visible behind the NO GENDER, as if behind bars ... kari's genius moved others to their own words, art, action--following a mandate of reclaiming the very words we speak and write--writing our selves, our other(ed) bodies, into a foundational post-gender post-genre state. This book is the start of what hopefully will be a much longer conversation"--from the introduction by Julian T. Brolaski & erica kaufman. Venn Diagram Productions is the collaborative intersection between Belladonna Books and Litmus Press.
