John Elizabeth Stintzi
An unforgettable poetry collection by rising star John Elizabeth Stintzi, Junebat grapples with the pain of uncertainty and the power of becoming. Set in a time of deep isolation in New Jersey, Junebat maps a struggle against depression as Stintzi questions and comes to grips with their gender identity. Challenging, heartbreaking, and wonderfully new, Junebat demolishes walls and shows that identity can flourish with possibility and continual metamorphosis, instead of being limited by confusion and contradiction.
