“100 Queer Poems”, a “landmark” awarded anthology

A queer book being awarded in a general category is not unheard of, but now we have a poetry anthology receiving such recognition. This is a rare encounter indeed. “100 Queer Poems,” edited by Mary Jean Chan and Andrew McMillan and published by Vintage Books, was awarded Best Poetry Book of the Year by The Guardian and shortlisted for the Books Are My Bag Readers Awards 2022. We believe it is the most notable anthology of last year and, maybe, one of the best ever. Răzvan Ion, our editor-in-chief, with a doctoral degree in poetry, explains in non-academic words why that is.
