Just got word of this year's Lambda Literary Award winners. In poetry, the awards went to Lemon Hound by Sina Queyras and A History of My Tattoo by Jim Elledge.
Also of note, Alison Bechdel's terrific Fun Home got the award for Lesbian Memoir/Biography. Bechdel's book, a "graphic memoir" (for lack of a better label), really stretches a lot of boundaries; it's brilliantly drawn, and brilliantly written to boot. I read it almost a year ago and it's still lodged inside my brain. The book has won tons of awards, and it definitely deserves 'em.
I haven't read either of the poetry winners (yet) though. I'd love to hear from anyone who has! Are they worth picking up?
