Eating Fire: My Life as a Lesbian Avenger

Kelly Cogswell


EATING FIRE: MY LIFE AS A LESBIAN AVENGER is an activist’s memoir spanning two decades from the Culture Wars of the ‘90’s through today’s War on Terror. Engaging the reader with a picaresque activist adventure, Cogswell simultaneously explores questions of identity, resistance, and citizenship, evoking Richard Wright’s Black Boy as she attempts to insert lesbians into America’s ongoing narrative of liberty and justice for all.

Keywords: lesbian, LGBT, activism, social change, memoir, New York, Kentucky, Cuba, France, citizenship
