Published in 1993, this brave, original novel is considered to be the finest account ever written of the complexities of a transgendered existence. Woman or man? That's the question that rages like a storm around Jess Goldberg, clouding her life and her identity. Growing up differently gendered in a blue--collar town in the 1950's, coming out as a butch in the bars and factories of the prefeminist '60s, deciding to pass as a man in order to survive when she is left without work or a community in the early '70s. This powerful, provocative and deeply moving novel sees Jess coming full circle, she learns to accept the complexities of being a transgendered person in a world demanding simple explanations: a he-she emerging whole, weathering the turbulence. Leslie Feinberg is also the author of Trans Liberation, Trans Gender Warriors and Transgender Liberation, and is a noted activist and speaker on transgender issues.… (mere)

it's rare for me to rate so highly a book with as many problems as this one has. as a novel, it is full of issues. but as a history, and as an explanation, and as a call to action, it is so important. (on that scale it's 5 stars.) it took me a little while (maybe close to 100 pages) to get into the book because of the quality of the writing (not great, and it was disorganized) and probably because of my discomfort with the butch/femme dynamic, but once it started becoming more radical i was able to put all that aside. it's pretty incredible to see the changes in the lgbtq community over the last 60 years. every generation's community would be virtually unrecognizable to the one before or after.

it's so sad to me that leslie didn't live to see where we are now. where the gender binary is being smashed to pieces, where zie'd be accepted without question in our community. (at least, in some places this is true. maybe not yet in the smaller towns zie was living in and writing about.) where the pronoun "they" is becoming more and more common, and people don't have to choose to be or feel male or female; they can be either or neither or go back and forth. i wish leslie could have felt that acceptance, and the pride in knowing zie were a part of making it happen, getting us to this point.

this is also about labor organizing and more, and all of that is super important, but my focus in reading was definitely on gender and presentation and the queer community.

i have never understood the butch/femme thing (a privilege of my generation, i think), but this book shows how brave - how seriously brave and strong - the butches and femmes of the past truly were.

"...I thought how brave she was to have begun this journey, to have withstood the towering judgments."

"Who was I now -- woman or man? That question could never be answered as long as those were the only choices; it could never be answered if it had to be asked."

"'Once upon a time...' She wove a story about a little girl who traveled out into the world to find the sorcerer who would tell her what she was supposed to do with her life. But on the way the girl was confronted by a fire-breathing dragon who blocked her path. She was very frightened by the dragon. 'What shall I do?' the girl cried out. Suddenly she noticed a huge boulder balanced on the cliff above. If she could push the rock, it would fall and kill the dragon. But how could she get up there? The girl called out to an eagle, 'Brother Eagle, please help me slay the dragon!' And the eagle swooped down and lifted the girl up to the cliff. The dragon saw the boulder falling, but it was too late. When the rock crushed the dragon, it disappeared in a cloud of smoke. The girl was very happy, but she was afraid the whole mess had made her late on her journey and now she'd never find the sorcerer. That evening she stopped and camped under a weeping willow beside a river. She started a small fire to cook her hot dogs and went into the forest to find more wood. When she returned, she found the sorcerer sitting by her fire, toasting marshmallows. She knew it was the sorcerer because he was wearing a tall pointed cap with stars and moons on it. So she sat down and asked him, 'Mr. Sorcerer, please tell me what I'm supposed to do with my life.' And the sorcerer smiled and told her, 'You are supposed to slay a dragon.'" ( )

Before her death at age 65 in 2014, Leslie Feinberg released this book as a .pdf on lulu.com because it has been so important to so many people in giving them hope, dignity and pride in themselves. I'm reading this now. Although this book is widely revered, treasured and has become a touchstone for so many, it may not be the best first choice to read for CIS.. I am hoping to expand this collection and offer more choices. Please check back. I'll share more thoughts after I complete the book.. --Mary Doran 2/21/2021

This was nothing short of powerful, and it gave me new understanding and appreciation for our history and my place in it. ( )

This was incredible grim and poignant, and a memoir that has stuck with me for awhile. The story itself was heart-wrenching and I was really impressed at the rawness of emotion throughout the book. It was also an eye-opening glimpse into a world I know nothing about. ( )

Feinberg attempts to present Goldberg's life as the personal side of political history, but the narrative seems unattached to time despite the insertion of landmark events like the Stonewall riot and the mention of Reagan and the Moral Majority.
