Poetry. LGBT Studies. Women's Studies. INSTANT CLASSIC is precisely that; as soon as you start reading it, you say, oh, yeah, of course, why didn't I think of that? Exploring the pathways of grammar-twisting, women's, queer poetry and poetics in a single form that encapsulates many possibilities, Kaufman's book is one of the few that links us all.
