About this book
Queer View Mirror 2 is a second volume of lesbian and gay short short fiction: snapshots of queer life that articulate, in one thousand words or less, different ways of the world. One hundred and one stories from writers in eight different countries make up Queer View Mirror 2. Their subject matter ranges the wide spectrum of gay experience, from first kisses to journeys home, moving stories of family and childhood, hot tales of stolen glances and one-night stands. Diverse and imaginative, these stories depict the pleasures and the politics of being queer. And by again collecting work by lesbians and gay men in one volume, the anthology acknowledges the common ground within the collective gay experience while at the same time celebrating its diversity.
Included in the collection are pieces by such well-known writers as Maureen Brady, Nisa Donnelly, Michael Thomas Ford, Gerry Gomez Pearlberg, Larissa Lai, Lesléa Newman, Carol Queen, Patrick Roscoe, Lawrence Schimel, and David Watmough.
