Recommendation: “Trans-Sister Radio” by Chris Bohjalian

Juli Myers recommends…

This is, without a doubt, the best and most accurate portrayal of a trans woman’s life (and I am speaking as one) that I have ever read. The story is narrated from the points of view of all of the main characters, and the thoughts and feelings of the trans woman in this book could have been lifted from my head. She and her situation are treated with what can only be described as love. Over the years, I have read many reviews of this book, some good, some so-so. However, from the point of view of someone who could be the main character, it’s a must-read for anyone – trans or not.
