"Zach Ellis’s debut, Being, is a remarkable, lyrical memoir that works to put into words what it is to be transgender. It’s a book about relationships, about growing up, about the body and mind, about desire, about parenting, about how we adjust to huge changes, and about whom we know ourselves to be. It’s a funny book, an honest book, and a book that cuts deep into you."

Originally released through Future Tense Books' Instant Future series...[ continued ]
