Jamison, J R - Hillbilly Queer: A Memoir

SKU: 9781734558166
"Middle-aged, openly gay, liberal highbrow J.R. Jamison spends his days in a world of trigger warnings and safe spaces, while his conservative trigger-happy dad, Dave, spends his questioning why Americans have become so sensitive. At the height of the 2016 Election, the two decide to put differences aside and take a road trip to Dave's hometown in rural Missouri for his fifty-five year class reunion. But with the constant backdrop of the Trump vs. Clinton battle at every turn, the two are forced to leave their bonding behind to explore one formidable question: Will the trip push them further apart or bring them closer together? Dave has always accepted his gay son. J.R. must learn if he's brave enough to accept his conservative dad. Traveling together through the rural, sun-beaten landscapes of central Missouri, the two meet people along the way who challenge their concepts of right and wrong, and together they uncover truths about their family's past that reveals more than political differences-they discover a lesson on the human condition that lands them on the international pages of The Guardian. Hillbilly Queer is an enduring love story between a dad and son who discover that sometimes the differences between us aren't really that different at all"--
