Metropolitan Lovers: Lambda Literary Award finalist

Julie Abraham's Metropolitan Lovers: The Homosexuality of Cities has been announced as a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award in LGBT Studies.

Not only has this been a record year for nominations for these awards (the quantity of titles nominated and publishers entered are each up 10%), it's also the first year the Bisexual category has evolved into two distinct categories: Bisexual Fiction and Bisexual Nonfiction. Says Lambda Foundation Board President Katherine V. Forrest:

“In a year of challenge and change for writers and publishers – and for the Foundation – the hundreds of books submitted for nomination illustrate the continuing dynamism of our literature. This year’s Lambda Literary Award Finalists and the quality of their work speak eloquently to the richness and range of our literature.”
