    I think I m getting old Some of the stories were great, and I am excited to find other work by a couple of the authors, like Claudia Rodriguez Juan the Brave Christy Road Freshman Year But the majority seemed to blur in my mind into the living in the mission escaping small town life doing lots of drugs being confused about whether my girlfriend still loves me because she s fucking guys girls for money story That said, I actually am kind of old, so maybe this would be appealing to those in their late teens and early twenties.Oh, and also I loved Michelle Tea s introduction, which sort of addresses the parts of this anthology I had troubles with, but from a much positive direction.

    The overwhelming majority of the pieces in this anthology are awesome I read a criticism of this book that complained that there was not much substance to the stories, however artfully written, and I would say that I agree with that to the extent that I finished the book feeling really eager to read of certain authors work I saw some of the pieces performed when Sister Spit came to UCSD and some of my favorite zine writers are up in there, like Nicole Georges and Cristy C Road New favorites Robin Akimbo, Rhiannon Argo, and especially Jamilah Mecca Sullivan her story narrated by a badass New York City high schooler blew me away.

    My friend Jenny wrote Money, so for this reason alone you should read BabyThis book is a great example of someone using her own success to lead With this book, Tea uses her clout to promote young, queer, working class writers who struggle to break into an old, straight, monied industry.You should buy this book on principle, but you should read it, too It s smart, entertaining, and moving And you will doubtless see many of the names again Thank Michelle Tea for her initiative I know Jenny will.

    The youth and inexperience of the writers in this collection is apparent the stories all shared a similar beat, voice, and style, similar, repititious storylines filled with tortured observations and introspective, brooding personal reflections The pieces noticeably lacked dialogue and action I would have liked to see a diverse group of contributors as well most of these women call the Bay Area home.

    Super sexy and an introduction to loads of great queer, diverse, American writers A great discussion starter about race, socioeconomics, homelessness and the many faces of sexual liberation takes LOVING THE VIZ Please write a Remember My Name Volume 2

    Wish I loved this than I did lots of class, fair amount of race, pretty young protagonists across the board, but too much sad sexually frustrated gay for my taste.

    Whether their essays, stories and comics depict a poor trailer park resident s birthday, an acid trip in San Francisco, or a gender bending six year old on a bike, the contributors to Baby Remember My Name An Anthology of New Queer Girl Writing seethe with exuberance.The collection s numerous highlights particularly include the bookends Both of whom have Pittsburgh connections In Paige McBee s Keep Your Goals Abstract, poetic interludes of photographs transition between the character s setting and reflections on a cross country road trip In Beth Steidle s Stay, body parts voice disparate opinions, narration slides from a painful breakup to an aquarium scene, and style alternates between confrontational and hallucinatory statements.Michelle Tea s own writing celebrates honesty and wildness, and her skills as a selecting editor are equally vivacious Each piece segues gracefully to the next through common style or subject matter, and the pace rarely drags or stutters For further proof of Tea s editing prowess, read Without a Net The Female Experience of Growing Up Working Class.

    I saw this book on the new shelf at the library and that it is edited by Michelle Tea I ve read some of her memoirs and enjoyed them, plus, she s local, so i picked it up Normally, i don t really go for short stories As i began this anthology, i saw these aren t even really short stories, many of them they re just words, maybe like a poem in story formatting they were super short, too i didn t like them, there was no substance eventually, some actual stories came and i liked those better some stories i really liked, juan is one that comes to mind a lot of others, i didn t like at all..but i guess that s an anthology for you a good number of the pieces are about young people living very poorly in SF s mission district Most of these stories seemed depressing it was ok, but i feel like i would have liked this better if i was specifically looking for new queer girl writing which is, after all what it s advertised as, so it s my fault than the book s But from my perspective, i ll give it 2 stars aka it was ok If you see it at your library, pick it up and skim through for the couple good stories

    This is not a pretty book The level of honesty in many of these stories is downright gruesome but the writing is authentic, edgy, and original This book really knocked me out the range of emotions, tones, and situations covered by the writing was staggering Some of the stories felt like I could almost have written them myself and some of them were completely repulsive but always in a very interesting artistic way The book had a very On the Road punk rock style feel and I love that kind of writing because it s honestly pretty removed from what my life is like on a daily basis The inclusion of zine writing and memoir style comics was sweet Michelle Tea is just as brilliant and insightful an editor as she is a writer.

    My problem rating this book is that its contents are so varied It contains some seriously impressive pieces by authors I will continue to look for in the future Other pieces failed to impress me in any regard they left me thoroughly meh I m also frustrated to find that apparently new queer girl writing continues to be defined within that typical scheme of queer writing, where marginilization has led to a culture largely defined by liberal sex and drugs Is my prudish lack of experience getting in the way here, or are there other incarnations of queer life consistently overlooked by queer literature
