"The Best LGBT Books of 2012"

Citizen is noted on this list of best LGBT books with this quote from K.M. Soehnlein (author of Robin and Ruby):
"...Aaron Shurin, in Citizen, deliriously revels in sensual images, sly wisdom and rumbling pauses. Shurin's brilliant book—his eleventh—suggests how a lengthy career allows a poet the room to roam, stretching the limits of what his poems can be."
