My latest "Ties That Bind" column is up at PopMatters. "The Thunderbolt of Change: 'Angels in America' and the Marriage Equality Victory" considers the portrayal of change in Tony Kushner's massive play and reflects on this in light of the historic, wonderful, and long overdue victory for equal rights with the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling.
Also, the good folks at Heavy Feather Review have published my review of Tom Williams' Don't Start Me Talkin' which you can read here. This is a witty and entertaining novel about the blues, identity, and authenticity in the new millennial America. And it has a gorgeous cover.
