Judy Grahn’s A Simple Revolution reviewed by Lambda Literary

Judy Grahn’s memoir, A Simple Revolution: The Making of an Activist Poet, has recently been reviewed by Lambda Literary Review.

Julie R. Enszer writes that “in many ways, A Simple Revolution is both a memoir—this is what happened—and a do-it-yourself manual—this is how you can make your own revolution: build communities, engage in activism, write, think, and imagine new ways of being.”

More from the review:

“A Simple Revolution is a subtle and crucial book. Subtle in how it does its extraordinary work, in the attention that Grahn pays both to her craft as a prose writer and to her thinking as a historian and significant theorist of lesbian-feminist and gay liberation. Crucial in the stories she tells, in the pieces of history that dangle precariously on the edge of erasure, at risk of being forgotten.”
