In I Feel That Way Too (Nightwood $19.95), Lambda Literary Fellow, Jaz Papadopoulos offers a poetically critical examination of sexual assault trials on survivors. As a response to the #MeToo movement, the book experimentally combines narrative poetics with art, philosophy and personal memory. Drawing inspiration from authors such as Leanne Betasamosake Simpson and Anne Carson, Papadopoulos navigates past and present to dissect how media and social structures uphold patriarchal ideologies. Through lyrical and meditative poems, the collection explores the intricacies of the nervous system in both battle and recovery, offering a compelling reflection on trauma, resilience and societal power dynamics. 9780889714687
