Janet Mock's 'Redefining Realness' Due In February
These are some of the early reviews about her book.
“Of the book’s many strengths, the most notable is its political bite. Mock defies the historically apolitical confines of the transgender memoir…[and] take[s] the uninitiated, non-transgender reader with her.”
“Undercurrents of strong emotion swirl throughout this well-written book…An enlightening, much-needed perspective on transgender identity.”
“Redefining Realness is loving, searing, and true.”
—Jennifer Finney Boylan, New York Times bestselling author of She’s Not There
“Redefining Realness is a classic American autobiography. Like Richard Wright and Maya Angelou, Janet Mock brings us into a world we may not know.”
—Barbara Smith, author of The Truth That Never Hurts
“Redefining Realness is a riveting, emotional, crisply written testimony. I couldn’t put it down!”
—Laverne Cox, actress, advocate and star of Orange Is the New Black
“Redefining Realness overflows with the everyday magic of survival and resiliency.”
—Susan Stryker, author of Transgender History
I'm looking forward to reading it, and hope you will pick it up when it hits your fave local bookstore. If you have local independent bookstores, support Janet and them by purchasing it from them or hit your fave online retailer or chain bookstore to do so as well.
Let's do our part to push this book toward the New York Times Best Seller List.
Also looking forward to seeing her in H-town when her book tour finally makes it to my part of the country
