The Band of Thebes "Best LGBT Books of 2013" list is here…

I chose Among the Bloodpeople: Politics and Flesh by Thomas Glave... Here's what I say:
It’s possible that I’ve never before read a book so capable of describing beauty and violence, the two at once, side-by-side, at war and in peace. Refusing to give in to selective amnesia or fatalistic despair, Thomas Glave dares us to examine the contradictions in tyranny and love, desire and hope and yearning and betrayal, personal and structural, our lives and lies, breathing, falling down, getting up again, breathing, yes, breathing, that’s what this book makes us do.
 And, the rest of the list is here – lots to think about…
