"Tea writes with a raw-hearted, wry but wide-eyed ebullience, rendering dyke bohemia with intense, gritty, glittering romanticism."-- The San Francisco Bay Guardian

Before penning her contemporary classic Valencia , Tea wrote wonderfully honest narrative poems, which she self-published in small editions, now collected here for the first time. A San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2004 and a Lambda Literary Award finalist.

I don't really care for Michelle Tea's poetry, not on the page, at least. I imagine her performances are stronger. If you're trying to put together the pieces of her life between The Chelsea Whistle and Rent Girl, though, The Beautiful offers a few clues.
