About Butch Geography:

"In this arresting collection, Stacey Waite is a pathfinder, charting with disarming honesty, humor, pathos and willful perplexity the uncertain terrain of gender in ways that shatter assumptions, unsettle easy presumptions, and yet, through the sheer grace of her craft and deft language, that open us to the beauty of our strange human enterprise."
—Kwame Dawes

"Stacey Waite is among the most dazzling and culturally relevant of living poets, an original storyteller with amazing stories to tell."
—Denise Duhamel
