Poetry. Fiction. LGBT Studies. "If a book can be yummy & brilliant, of course this is that. Reading THE ROSY MEDALLIONS I felt I had come upon a world with so many insides, moments forged, then strewn, by an alienated pleasure seeking 'I.' This author's perspective ranges back and forth over her life and memories like a hungry camera, doggily attracted to instances of beauty, cruelty and aeons of female privacy. Camille Roy's a pioneer in the new literature which used to be called autobiography, poetry, theater, prose or even the essay. See all their walls submissively crumble on her trek towards a gaudy piecemeal something resembling truth for the new dark ages and some light at the end of the tunnel"--Eileen Myles.
