Ballantine, 2001. First Edition. Hardcover. Association copy. This first edition of Obejas' 2001 family drama is inscribed to her then-student Tim Jones-Yelvington: "To Tim -- So glad, so happy to have had you in class. Best wishes, Achy. 7 June 07."
Obejas is multiple award-winning queer Cuban-American writer and translator. Jones-Yelvington has gone on to an incredible writing and performance career himself and in the guise of drag queen "TinTim." Says Roxane Gay: "Tim Jones-Yelvington doesn’t push the envelope. He kicks the shit out of it. If ever there was a writer who could garner a rock star following, it would be this man." Very good / very good. Item #763
