ACE, Samuel & SMUKLER, Linda
Meet Me There: Normal Sex & Home in three days. Don’t wash.
Meet Me There gathers two essential books by Samuel Ace & Linda Smukler: Normal Sex (Firebrand Books, 1994) and Home in three days. Don’t wash. (Hard Press, 1996) — accompanied by a new introduction and poem by Ace, and by a collection of short essays and reflections on Ace and Smukler’s poetics by Cameron Awkward-Rich, Ari Banias, Kay Gabriel, Andrea Lawlor, Eileen Myles, Joan Nestle, Pamela Sneed, TC Tolbert, and Yanyi.
Meet Me There brings together Ace / Smukler’s remarkable explorations of the interplay of language, desire, sex, and identity, and repositions this work, 25 years later, in the midst of burgeoning contemporary conversations about gender, sexuality, sociality, language, politics, and poetics.
