A Reading in Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Publication of “Rolling the R’s”
R. Zamora Linmark joins us to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of, “Rolling the R’s”. In this daring first novel, tour-de-force experiments in narrative structure, pidgin, and perspective roll every “are”, throwing new light on gay identity and the trauma of assimilation. Rolling the R’s goes beyond “coming of age” and “coming out” to address the realities of cultural confusion, prejudice, and spiraling levels of desire in humorous yet haunting portrayals.
