Ties That Bind
Familial Homophobia and Its Consequences
Sarah Schulman - 2009-10-06
Рейтинг Goodreads
Ties That Bind by Sarah Schulman explores the concept of "familial homophobia," a cultural crisis that has not had a name until now. Schulman draws on her personal experience, research, and social engagement to offer a practical and attainable vision of transformation. This groundbreaking work is an essential addition to our understanding of homophobia and is a must-read for anyone seeking to learn more about this important issue.

I highly recommend reading the book “Ties That Bind: Familial Homophobia and Its Consequences” by @sarahschulman3. She examines familial homophobia as a “cultural crisis, rather than a personal or an individual problem.”      источник

On Michael Jackson
Margo Jefferson - 2007-01-09 (впервые опубликовано в 2006)
Рейтинг Goodreads
This cultural analysis offers an unexpected compassion towards Michael Jackson's life and the notorious trial that surrounded him. Margo Jefferson brings her sharp intellect and incomparable insight to shed light on the media circus that drew us in. Jefferson reads between the lines of Jackson's autobiography and published accounts of his childhood, leaving us with thought-provoking questions about child stardom and fame.

Let the Record Show
A Political History of ACT UP New York, 1987-1993
Sarah Schulman - 2021-05-18
Рейтинг Goodreads
This comprehensive political history chronicles the groundbreaking activism of ACT UP and American AIDS activism. This unlikely coalition of activists from all backgrounds changed the world in just six years with their multifaceted attack on the corporations, institutions, governments, and individuals who stood in the way of AIDS treatment for all. Let the Record Show, based on over two hundred interviews with ACT UP members, offers a revelatory exploration of the coalition's inner workings, conflicts, achievements, and ultimate impact on society. A must-read for today's activists.

The way I feel about Sarah Schulman’s book LET THE RECORD SHOW mirrors how I felt the first time I read THE WARMTH OF OTHER SUNS by Isabel Wilkerson: deeply grateful for the author’s work, stunned at the pervasive erasure we endure AND desperate to put a copy in everyone’s hands.      источник

Станция Одиннадцать book cover
Станция Одиннадцать
Emily St. John Mandel - 2014-09-09
Рейтинг Goodreads
Кирстен Реймонд никогда не забудет последнее выступление Артура Линдера, известнейшего голливудского актера, умершего прямо на сцене во время постановки "Короля Лира". Через пару недель эпидемия смертельного грузинского гриппа опустошит и разрушит цивилизацию... Спустя двадцать лет Кирстен вместе с маленькой театральной труппой "Дорожная симфония" бродит между поселениями выживших и пытается сохранить останки культуры. Но после прибытия в городок Сент-Дебора, обитель опасного самопровозглашенного пророка, жизнь актеров оказывается под угрозой. Жуткая и одновременно лиричная, "Станция Одиннадцать" рассказывает историю об отношениях, поддерживающих нас, об эфемерном характере славы и о красоте мира, который мы знаем.
