Here and Now: An Anthology of Queer Italian-Canadian Writing is the most comprehensive volume yet of queer Italian-Canadian writing, and a milestone in Italian-Canadian studies and Canadian literature. The book includes short stories, poems, memoirs, excerpts of novels, plays and film scripts in English. The writings in this groundbreaking anthology take readers on a journey that interweaves private and public spaces, eliciting love and anger, sadness and joy.
Featuring more than 30 established and emerging writers, with an introduction by literary scholars Domenic Beneventi, Michela Baldo and Paolo Frascà, the volume has garnered the support of the Queer Studies in Quebec Research Group (ÉRÉQQ), the Association of Italian Canadian Writers (AICW), the Frank Iacobucci Centre for Italian-Canadian Studies at the University of Toronto, English Language Arts Network (ELAN), the University of Calabria and Accenti Magazine.
Here and Now: An Anthology of Queer Italian-Canadian Writing is an essential volume for scholars and students as well as the public at large.
