Donna Minkowitz is the author of “Growing up Golem: How I Survived My Mother, Brooklyn and Some Really Bad Dates,” which Hugo and Nebula Award-winning writer Terry Bisson called “rich and wild, dark and funny, as fearless as her legendary journalism and as scary as a fairy tale.” Donna won a Lambda Literary Award for her first memoir, “Ferocious Romance: What My Encounters with the Right Taught Me about Sex, God and Fury.” A columnist on queer politics and culture for the Village Voice for eight years, Minkowitz has also written for the New York Times Book Review, Salon, The Nation, and New York magazine. She won a GLAAD Media Award for her journalism in the Voice, and the Exceptional Merit Media Award for “In the Name of the Father,” a piece in which she disguised herself as a sixteen-year-old Christian evangelical boy to write about the Promise Keepers for Ms. Magazine.
