Imogen Binnie & Evan Kennedy

Imogen Binnie and Evan Kennedy drive punk sensibility into queer literature at high speed. Maybe they would each contest that description, if punk is a thing of the past. Binnie’s Nevada (Topside Press, 2013; FSG, 2022) and Kennedy’s Metamorphoses (City Lights, 2023) are books filled with raucous sociality, gay lust for life, comic misapprehension, formal variety, urban dramedy. If it’s not punk, it’s something better.

This event will also be livestreamed for free on The Poetry Project's YouTube channel.
