Summary:
"Boyish engages what once thought impossible: a reconciliation of southern and queer identities, of upbringing, rebellion, and revival.

Abstract:

"Boyish engages what once thought impossible: a reconciliation of southern and queer identities, of upbringing, rebellion, and revival. The coming to Jesus moments of looking back, of liberation & reckoning. Each page exterior & interior revolutions. To carve space between. To cut-up the absence. To find oneself carried over graveled creekside into the first mouth's babble.

The landscapes of city's dystopia meeting the queer pastoral, where conservation often means what must burn down"--
