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.
“There is a place you go as a reader in this book, and that place is the body, and I’m in love with the rediscovery. This book will break your heart, make you bust a gut laughing, seduce you into leaving your self a little, and bring you back to being, differently. Beautifully.” —Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Chronology of Water and Dora: A Headcase.
Being is ~10k words, a mini-memoir just made for a single evening’s read, though we’re sure you’ll go back to it again and again.
