Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. With a close eye on the past and an outstretched hand to the future, DEAD DAD CLUB traces the death of a father and ties it to the rebirth of a son. Weaving together the hilarious and the grotesque, DEAD DAD CLUB is a starkly honest collection of poems and musings that manage to make light of even the heaviest topics.
Julian Shendelman has a weird-looking dog (part fawn, part fruit bat) and a nice Jewish boyfriend. A ten-year resident of Oakland, Julian splits his time between his boring desk job, organizing the Bay Area Trans Writers Workshop, and making moody zines. Julian identifies as "genre-fluid." He was a 2016 Pushcart-nominated poet for his piece in Bat City Review, and won a literary death match with a true story about Queer Punk Cannibalism. This is his first book.Author City: OAKLAND, CA USA
