    One of the nice things about being in a collection or an anthology is the ability to discuss the other pieces in the book, and to rub elbows if in a nonliteral but literary way with authors both known and unknown to me.Equality What Do You Think About When You Think of Equality is a collection of short nonfiction pieces by twenty five essayists, and I m lucky enough to find myself among them Equality has been my coffee shop project book for the last few weeks.My what Right The coffee shop One of the nice things about being in a collection or an anthology is the ability to discuss the other pieces in the book, and to rub elbows if in a nonliteral but literary way with authors both known and unknown to me.Equality What Do You Think About When You Think of Equality is a collection of short nonfiction pieces by twenty five essayists, and I m lucky enough to find myself among them Equality has been my coffee shop project book for the last few weeks.My what Right The coffee shop project is where my husband and I go to a coffee shop on Sundays and sit and read without any electronic devices on hand, for at least half an hour I have a tea or a white hot chocolate, he has a coffee, and we reconnect with physical reading, a skill that we ve both realized can suffer when we re both given easy access to the net I finished it this morning, having read a few essays each time.There are twenty five answers to this question, and although there s some overlap, for the most part, each essayist took a different approach to the discussion, and left me with something new to consider and ponder.It would take me ages to go through each of the twenty five pieces well, twenty four, as I never talk about my own entry when discussing collections or anthologies but a few echoed over the course of the last couple of months The Last Acceptable Prejudice, by Barbara Abercrombie gave me pause as I found myself nodding along with the words on the page, and Larry Duplechan s Have You Met My Husband was familiar one moment and then a completely different point of view the next In fact, all the pieces that touched on marriage equality or queerness were ones that I found myself most captured by for obvious reasons and it was fascinating to see the same desires mirrored in other places, other times Canada was about a decade ahead of the US with marriage equality , and some of the experiences.Should it have surprised me so very much that Jeff Mann s Two Mountain Weddings, had less impediments to them than my own wedding Maybe not, but my own prejudices about what to expect from the Southern states certainly had me assuming the worst and being surprised by the tale he told.Many of the stories did that delivered a tale I wasn t expecting The closing piece, Body Language The Naked Truth, by Eldonna Edwards a woman who donated a kidney and later learned the kidney was given to a man who has politics diametrically opposed to her own liberal, pro queer ones were full of such compassion for those to whom I will admit I struggle to be compassionate My first thought in the face of someone spouting anti queer rhetoric is rarely as polite as some of those who speak in the pages of Equality.Other standouts Equality in High Def, by Jewelle Gomez though it has a painful bittersweetness to it now the election is over , Ambiguously Ever After, by Jeffrey Ricker who I speak of often, and whose piece in this collection left me thoughtful and maudlin for days , and On Equality, by Rob Byrnes, who managed to level his wit at the topic and put such a wry smile on my face even as he painted so perfect a picture with his words.As I said, I walked out of the coffee shop and this collection with a lot to ponder And while the general consensus of all the pieces in the book was pretty clear Equality is a goal, not a destination we re likely ever to truly reach, like all goals, it s often forward progress that simportant.We might never get there, but that s the last reason not to get closer

    Buzz about this book began right around the time of the election, and I thought this type of book was probablyimportant than ever Now that I ve read it, I know this book ISimportant than ever The first pages grabbed me from the biography of an activist to an analysis of the phrase all men are created equal The variety of time, place, subject, voice, and perspective kept my interest high I have too many favorites to mention We are living in troubling times for so many reasons, Buzz about this book began right around the time of the election, and I thought this type of book was probablyimportant than ever Now that I ve read it, I know this book ISimportant than ever The first pages grabbed me from the biography of an activist to an analysis of the phrase all men are created equal The variety of time, place, subject, voice, and perspective kept my interest high I have too many favorites to mention We are living in troubling times for so many reasons, but this book gave me hope that we re still engaged in conversation

    Paul Fahey has assembled a unique, diverse, and often surprising collection of essays on the meaning of equality Unique because it s rare for so many angles on equality to be examined in one book Diverse because the writers represent a wide range of ages, races, regions, religions, gender and sexual identities, and occupations and preoccupations Surprising because of the honesty with which they recount their personal experiences, shortcomings, attempts at self improvement, and cautious optimi Paul Fahey has assembled a unique, diverse, and often surprising collection of essays on the meaning of equality Unique because it s rare for so many angles on equality to be examined in one book Diverse because the writers represent a wide range of ages, races, regions, religions, gender and sexual identities, and occupations and preoccupations Surprising because of the honesty with which they recount their personal experiences, shortcomings, attempts at self improvement, and cautious optimism for the future

    A review on the essays could never merit the words on the pages in this simple but powerful contemplation of equity or lack thereof.Edited by Paul Fahey A MUST READ
