Take Me With You by Andrea Gibson
Andrea Gibson explores themes of love, gender, politics, sexuality, family, and forgiveness with stunning imagery and a fierce willingness to delve into the exploration of what it means to heal and to be different in this strange age. Take Me With You, illustrated throughout with evocative line drawings by Sarah J. Coleman, is small enough to fit in your bag, with messages that are big enough to wake even the sleepiest heart. Divided into three sections (love, the world, and becoming) of one liners, couplets, greatest hits phrases, and longer form poems, it has something for everyone, and will be placed in stockings, lockers, and the hands of anyone who could use its wisdom.
“Gibson’s work is at once deeply haunting and profoundly inspiring. Their words cut so sharply and completely they cannot be shaken. To call them one of the best poets is a gross understatement. They are a rare artist who forever changes those who experience their poems.” Carlos Andrés Gómez, author of Man Up
