Thank you, Barbara Hammer!’- Sadie Benning , artist’Barbara Hammerrs’s genius is an erotic genius, one rich in intuitive intelligence.

Barbarars’s fearless queer intelligence illuminates every page.’- John Greyson , filmmaker ‘Now the gift of Hammerrs’s sounds and images is matched by that of her words. Beautifully designed and illustrated, HAMMER! is a striking book, from its title to its impact.’- Patricia White , author of Uninvited: Classical Hollywood Cinema and Lesbian Representability ‘A candid and colorful memoir, HAMMER! offers valuable primary source material and original feminist film theory by a pioneer of avant-garde American cinema.’- Livia Bloom , film curator ‘Barbara Hammer is a true cinematic pioneer; her tremendous body of work continues to inspire audiences and artists alike.’- Jenni Olson , LGBT film historianHAMMER! is the first book by influential filmmaker Barbara Hammer, whose life and work have inspired a generation of queer, feminist, and avant-garde artists and filmmakers. The wild days of non-monogamy in the 1970s, the development of a queer aesthetic in the 1980s, the fight for visibility during the culture wars of the 1990s, her search for meaning as she contemplates mortality in the past ten years- HAMMER! includes texts from these periods, new writings, and fully contextualized film stills to create a memoir as innovative and disarming as her work has always been.Barbara Hammer has made over eighty films and video works over the past forty years. Her experimental films of the 1970s often dealt with taboo subjects such as menstruation, female orgasm, and lesbian sexuality. In the 1980s she used optical printing to explore perception and the fragility of 16mm film life itself. Her documentaries tell the stories of marginalized peoples who have been hidden from history. Her most recent work, A Horse is Not a Metaphor , won the 2009 Teddy Award for Best Short Film at the Berlin International Film Festival. A retrospective screening of her work will be presented at the Museum of Modern Art in spring 2010 and will travel to the Reina Sophia in Madrid and the Tate Modern in London.

Nancy Garden’s Annie on My Mind is the classic lesbian young adult novel. It is so truthful and honest, it has been banned from many school libraries and even publicly burned in Kansas City. Her newest novel, Good Moon Rising, is also about a young teenage lesbian and is as moving and startling as Annie. Jan and Kerry are two aspiring actresses in high school. When they begin working on a production of The Crucible — not coincidentally about another kind of witchhunt — they find that they are at the center of a social and academic controversy. As always, Garden understands the problems of young people, the prevalence of social homophobia, and pain of being an outcast. Good Moon Rising is mandatory reading for anyone interested in the problems faced by gay youth today, or for that matter, the problems faced by gay people everywhere.
