The City Girl Magazine aims to connect, inspire and empower women living in cities across the UK and abroad. I write about books and entertainment for the magazine (what else!?!) and thought I would share this post on my blog too.
Are you looking for your next indigiqueer read? I’ve written a book review of Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead – an intimate and vulnerable novel that became a Lambda award winner in 2019.
Trying to eke out a living in Winnipeg as a cybersex worker, news of his stepfather’s death means Jonny must somehow scrape together enough money to return to the reservation where he grew up. With the funeral day drawing near, Jonny’s reminiscences are by turns painful and nostalgic as he reckons with what it might mean to be home.
