"Heterosexual cis people, while willfully ignoring it, have staked their whole sexuality on a bet that each other's genders are real. If only cis heterosexuals would realize that, like trans women, the activity in which they are indulging is a big self-pleasuring lie" ???

What a delightful Christmas eve package this was! Vivek Shraya's new book, a cute little tote, and some mini hair conditioners. I'm not surprised Vivek Shraya has partnered with pantene as she has great hair. Looking forward to diving into this book length essay on change!

An extremely unique book. A reimagining of tween series like the Babysitter's Club (a paranormal girl detective club a la first season Buffy), a brutally honest YA novel about queer / trans coming of age and disordered eating, a choose your own adventure / video game style surreal journey through the body, an intellectual adult reflection on all this. Wonderfully imaginative, thoughtfully intertextual, emotionally resonant, critically nostalgic.

"I seek to haunt the narratives of the young girl -- at least, the ones I grew up with -- with the queer and genderqueer and trans girls and maybe-not-girls they leave out: so many missing bodies."

A Dream of a Woman | Casey Plett, Arsenal Pulp Press

No surprise I loved Casey Plett's most recent short story collection. She writes about (and for) trans women, often looking at relationships between them. Her characters are so intricate and authentic. From one woman with Mennonite roots returning to the prairies to another leaving Portland queertopia to transition in NYC anonymity, the stories crackle with quiet complexity. The characters felt like friends who came to visit and left. I miss them.

shawnmooney Fascinating – this has been on my radar for a few weeks and it‘s getting bumped up higher on the list thanks to you! I wonder if I might coax you onto Zoom for a 10-minute chat about this book for my BookTube channel, specifically for my new Bite-sized Book Chat series? The playlist of all the episodes is here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLU-61cZp1pQdBH5V0Zb9q-2ujl4PY8nhf. I‘d be delighted to have you as a guest! 5mo
prowlix I just bought her book Little Fish this summer and it‘s staring at me from my “short list tbr.” I‘m so excited to read her 5mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @shawnmooney Hi Shawn! Thanks so much for the offer. Sadly I am quite overloaded right now--working and 36 weeks pregnant. Maybe sometime in the future! 😊 5mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @prowlix Also great, as is her first story collection A Safe Girl to Love and the trans SFF anthology she edited with Cat Fitzpatrick. All her work is so good!! 5mo

I would like to request a million more books written by trans kings please.

Just started it, but so far this has been a very fun look into the absurdity of queer and straight culture in the not too distant future. It‘s everything you know pushed just a LITTLE FURTHER and the effect is hilarious.

"She thought of a generation of girls who might grow up strong and unbothered and untouched, healthy, beautiful, learned, and full of love, who could fall into adulthood knowing girlhood, girlhood in full, having the chance at normal kinds of pain, who would grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and grow and become oceans, gentle armies, thick with pared-down wisdom and love." ? #TransBooks #QueerBooks #CanLit
