A New York Times bestselling feminist author's sparkling memoir of gender transition (among many other things).

Reasons for Transitioning:

  • Want to impress good-looking ex;
  • Want to upset good-looking ex;
  • Bored of existing wardrobe, looking for excuse to buy all-new clothes that don't fit in a new way;
  • Younger siblings getting too much attention;
  • Neoliberalism??;
  • Want to sing both parts of a duet at karaoke;
  • Something about upper-body strength;
  • Excited to reinforce a different set of sexist stereotypes;
  • Cheaper haircuts;
  • Just love layering shirts ...

From the beloved writer behind The Toast and Slate's 'Dear Prudence' column comes a personal essay collection exploring popular culture, literature, religion, and sexuality.

With wit and compassion, Daniel Mallory Ortberg revisits beloved cultural and literary figures in the light of his transition.
