To counter this perfect, he bargains a colourful concept of queer anti-urbanism that refuses to push aside the agricultural as a cultural backwater.
Impassioned and provocative, Another Country expands the chances of queer reports past its urban limits. Herring leads his readers from faeries within the rural Midwest to pictures of white supremacists within the deep South, from Roland Barthes’s obsession with Parisian style to a photo memoir via Alison Bechdel set within the Appalachian Mountains, and from cubist work in Lancaster County to lesbian separatist communes at the northern California coast. the result's a completely unique account of ways queer reviews can—and should—get to a different country.
