The Literary Party: Growing Up GAY and AMISH in America a collection of poetry by James Schwartz
Synopsis: A provocative and eye-opening account of growing up gay and Amish in America. Poet James Schwartz combines a mixture of poetry and short stories to describe family troubles, lost love, religion, and what it's like to take a horse and buggy to a gay nightclub. The Literary Party is an emotional, touching book with implications that extend to any religion or culture where intolerance is prevalent.
James Schwartz captures readers with his honest emotions and raw poetic truths. From heartbreak to comedy, with actual photos throughout the book, this touching collection portrays the struggles of ‘coming out’ in a close-minded environment. I especially enjoyed the humor AND thought it to be touching that Schwartz dedicated the book in memory of Matthew Shepard.
An excerpt: “How can you tell if an Amish man is gay? He likes his men at night. Get it? Mennonite?”
