Sinister Wisdom 83: Identity and Desire

Identity and Desire

Sinister Wisdom 83: Identity and Desire offers a representative body of work which evokes desire - in so many ways - from poems of loss and regret, to powerful longings for, and connection to, culture, family, and imagination; desire that is carnal and raw, compassionate and insightful, thoughtful and probing - manifestations often unarticulated in a world that continues to marginalize us.
