EuroTex is sort of a meditative essay thang I wrote about growning up in Texas as a Eurotrash wannabe. It will be published in 2007 in Identity Envy, an anthology edited by Jim Tushinski and Jim Van Buskirk.
The book is "a collection of creative nonfiction by queer writers exploring their attachment to another identity—a different race, religion, ethnicity, sex, nationality, class, a pop culture figure, something, anything—while wrestling with feelings of displacement, of not belonging.... Identity Envy includes essays, memoir, and creative nonfiction that explore the dynamics of growing up and being grown up, of wanting to belong and of finding one's way."
The editors have put up a preview site, and it looks pretty cool. Check it out on the links above!
