A collection of short essays on life outside the binary, told with good humor, grace, and a refreshing amount of optimism. As they say in their final essay, the trans narrative is so often the pity narrative, full of the real and common ways in which we are put in danger, hurt, or made to feel outcast, but there is a lot more to our lives than our role as victim or poignant story. Bergman's essays are a strong attempt to get beyond all that. And sure, you're not going to have a trans life free of agitation or worry or the occasional asshole doing an asshole dance in front of you, but after reading this book my takeaway turned out to be, "Hey, at least there are some good stories in all this craziness!"

This is a really interesting book of essays written about being non gender normative in a very gender binary society. They're easy to read, but also give a great glimpse into Bergman's life and hir interactions with family, Judaism, traveling, health care, sex and starting a family. ( )
