Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


A reprint of trans poet, activist, and teacher TC Tolbert's beloved debut collection of poetry.
In Gephyromania (literally, an addiction to or an obsession with bridges), Tolbert's choice isn't between female and male, lover and self, or loss and relief, but rather to live in the places where those binaries meet. Is a bridge simply an attempt to connect one body back to itself? Sensing the parallels between a lover who leaves and his own female body as it chooses to recede, the poems in Gephyromania explore the spaces between, among, across, and even within bodies.
