The city has been the close to unique concentration of queer students and queer cultures in the United States. Asking us to seem past the towns at the coasts, Scott Herring attracts a brand new map, monitoring how rural queers have spoke back to this myopic attitude. Interweaving a variety of disciplines—art, media, literature, functionality, and style studies—he develops a longer critique of ways metronormativity saturates LGBTQ politics, art, and feedback. To counter this perfect, he bargains a colourful concept 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 stories 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 image memoir by way of 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 the way queer reviews can—and should—get to a different country.
