To counter this excellent, he bargains a colourful conception of queer anti-urbanism that refuses to brush aside the agricultural as a cultural backwater.
Impassioned and provocative, Another Country expands the probabilities of queer reviews past its urban limits. Herring leads his readers from faeries within the rural Midwest to pictures of white supremacists within the deep South, from Roland Barthes’s obsession with Parisian style to a picture memoir via Alison Bechdel set within the Appalachian Mountains, and from cubist work in Lancaster County to lesbian separatist communes at the northern California coast. the result's a wholly unique account of ways queer reports can—and should—get to a different country.
