Hillbilly Queer by J. R. Jamison (Book Review #1017)


Hillbilly Queer is a memoir written about how the author grew up as a hillbilly and queer in a neighbourhood where they were primarily homophobic.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The journey discusses recognition over terms like labelling, fear, diversity and race. The story also focuses on the author’s relationship with his dad. I particularly enjoyed reading about how he wanted to rebuild that connection with him and how it reminisced with it being a way for others to also behave towards each other.

The literature was easy to read and follow. It was descriptive and heartfelt. I appreciated the honesty and believe that’s what makes a memoir stand out. As a reader, I felt the authors situation and recommend this book to anyone who likes to read biographies.
