#QueerHeroes Day 26 – Alexander Chee

#QueerHeroes Day 26 – Alexander Chee

Chee’s fiction is hypnotic, but I’m always most entranced by his essays. He turns everyday experiences into symphonies.

Planting a garden suddenly becomes as arduous and majestic as giving birth. A catering gig becomes a tale of overwhelming intimacy and quiet heartbreak.

I encourage all of you to read his collection HOW TO WRITE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL NOVEL first. He introduces himself better than I ever could with this brief bio.

It details his relationship with his father and family, his AIDS activism in San Francisco, experiencing life as a writer, and more. You’ll undoubtedly learn a bit about yourself too.
