Donna Minkowitz won a Lambda Literary Award for her memoir Ferocious Romance: What My Encounters with the Right Taught Me about Sex, God and Fury. A former feature writer and columnist for the Village Voice, she has also written for the New York Times Book Review, Salon, The Nation, New York magazine and Newsday.
She recently completed a second memoir combines approximately 87% true memoir with fantasy, an example of a new form she is calling “magic realist memoir.”
That as yet untitled book will be out from Magnus Press in September 2013!
Minkowitz wrote “In The Name Of The Father,” a creative nonfiction piece in which she disguised herself as a 16 year-old, Christian evangelical boy to write about the Promise Keepers for Ms. In 2000, she was commissioned to write two performance pieces about religion for The Kitchen, the New York City avant-garde arts space. One of them, “Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy and Cruel!”, was also exhibited and performed at Time and Space Limited in Hudson, New York.
She is a former national political columnist for The Advocate.
