Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Robert Campbell's INFINITY CLOSET blazes with humor, heartbreak, and tenderness. In these acutely imagined coming-of-age lyrics, the queer body blooms into knife and forest pilgrim, robot and mystical storyteller. Set at the crossroads where inquiry and wonder intersect, "no wiser, but blind and full of music," Campbell's light pours in from all sides.
