Ken Harvey wins 2001 Violet Quill award

InsightOut Books has presented the 2001 Violet Quill Award for emerging LGBT authors to Ken Harvey, author of the short story collection If You Were With Me Everything Would Be All Right (Pleasure Boat Studio). The award, chosen by a committee of InsightOut staff members, was presented at the Lambda Literary Festival, held in San Francisco October 19-21. InsightOut editor in chief David Rosen noted, "The originality of Ken Harvey's vision, the deceptive clarity of his style, and the timelessness of these stories' themes literally took our committee's collective breath away." Other finalists for the award included Donna Allegra's Witness to the League of Blond Hip Hop Dancers, Thomas Glave's Whose Song? And Other Stories, Amy Shutzer's Undertow, and K.M. Soehnlein's The World of Normal Boys.
