Detransition, Baby (Hardcover, 2021, One World) 5 stars

A whipsmart debut about three women--transgender and cisgender--whose lives collide after an unexpected pregnancy forces …

This book surprised me in both its breadth and depth. The characters are beautifully articulated and the story is deeply affecting. The book is as funny as it is sincere, as bleak as it hopeful. An instant classic in 21st century queer and trans lit.

Savage Ecology (Paperback, Duke University Press) 5 stars

This incredible book took me three goddamn years to finish but holy hell it was worth it. The scope is mind boggling (appropriate for our times) and as the blub by Bonnie Honig says on the back cover, "[the book] gives us a weirdly hopeful eco-pessimism" whose politics I will be grappling with for years to come. If you can stomach theory, I highly, highly recommend this book.
