Read full description of the books Call Me by My Other Name:Call Me by My Other Name is a fierce, unforgettable book about bodies and desire. Told in three voices--two historical figures, and a meta-poetic third voice that connects past to present--Wetlaufer's story weaves a brutal narrative of how we are taught to masquerade queer gender and yearning. Deeply affecting, the inventive language of these crucial, well-crafted poems transports at the same time as it transcends, embracing ambiguity, balancing intimacy and reserve. This much-anticipated second book by the Lambda Award-winning writer demonstrates that poetry, at its best, is capable of deliverance.
Read information about the authorI am a poet, editor, and educator. I have a PhD in Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Utah, an MFA in Poetry from Florida State University, a BA in French and an MA in Teaching from Bennington College. I've published three chapbooks, Scent of Shatter (Grey Book Press 2010), Bad Wife Spankings, winner of the 2010 Gertrude Press Chapbook Contest, and Nostrums (Unthinkable Creatures Press 2013). I’m the editor of Adrienne: A Poetry Journal of Queer Women. My first full-length collection, Mysterious Acts by My People was published in March 2014 by Sibling Rivalry Press, and won the Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Poetry. My second book, Call Me by My Other Name, will be published by SRP in March 2016.
I have quite varied literary tastes, my favorites being poetry (obviously), literary fiction, and YA lit, especially books with LGBT protagonists and/or dystopian and supernatural themes.
When I’m not reading and writing, enjoy camping, playing with my French Bulldog and two cats, knitting, and traveling.
