Gender Flytrap


Product Description
Product Details


"Early on in Zoe Estelle Hitzel's Gender Flytrap, she both catalogues and commands, 'Hope to be just another/sound, a shiver/between teeth.' This book enacts and then surpasses that insistent wish, becoming a generous and necessary collection of 'the body's wide-flung wing.' How thankful I am that this writing of perseverance--which is to say, transition--exists. Buy it for yourself, then buy it for your library, then buy a copy and leave it on a bus or at a ball field. This 'small sun' is a gift."
--TC Tolbert, author of Gephyromania and co-editor of Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics
"Whose body is this? Gender Flytrap says, the body is territory that has been claimed, bordered, tilled, sold, and excavated. Zoe Estelle Hitzel's words take those sales, borders, and excavations and pull an extravagant wildness from them. This body isn't yours. It's mine, she roars. I've never understood better than I do now, or with such elegance and grace, that our bodies, and our words, are not for the taking."
--Nicole Walker, author of The After-Normal: Brief, Alphabetical Essays on a Changing Planet and Sustainability: A Love Story
