Staff Reviews

At the time Redefining Realness came out, it was one of only a precious few books published by a major press that was written by a trans person about, well, what it's like to grow up trans in America. This may seem an almost banal occurrence in 2017 (almost) but let me tell you, three years ago the genre was DRY DRY DRY. I know that Redefining Realness debuting on the NYT bestseller list helped persuade the major publishers that YES, we WANT books about trans women WRITTEN BY trans women--we really do!! There is no universal trans experience, which is why we need a multitude of stories, nonfiction and novel--thank you, Janet Mock, for setting the trail aflame for trans authors everywhere with your MOST EXCELLENT book.

New York Times Bestseller - Winner of the 2015 WOMEN'S WAY Book Prize - Goodreads Best of 2014 Semi-Finalist - Books for a Better Life Award Finalist - Lambda Literary Award Finalist - Time Magazine "30 Most Influential People on the Internet" - American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book

In her profound and courageous New York Times bestseller, Janet Mock establishes herself as a resounding and inspirational voice for the transgender community--and anyone fighting to define themselves on their own terms.

With unflinching honesty and moving prose, Janet Mock relays her experiences of growing up young, multiracial, poor, and trans in America, offering readers accessible language while imparting vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of a marginalized and misunderstood population. Though undoubtedly an account of one woman's quest for self at all costs, Redefining Realness is a powerful vision of possibility and self-realization, pushing us all toward greater acceptance of one another--and of ourselves--showing as never before how to be unapologetic and real.
