DELANY, Samuel; CARR, Drake Carr: BOCKLER, Sabrina
A chance encounter with two older fellows at the movie theater has the young vagabond Ligie on his way to Lot-8, a trailer park down the road with an unconventional local reputation. There, Ligie meets Big Joe and his extended Lot-8-family: a tight-knit community of queers and freaks all sectioned together by the landlord at the outskirts of town.
Weaving together colorful characters and outright carnal debauchery, BIG JOE is a radical pastoral of community, desire, and the strangeness of knowing one another.
Featuring color illustrations by Drake Carr and Sabrina Bockler. [publisher's note]
