Book excerpt: NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The lives of three women—transgender and cisgender—collide after an unexpected pregnancy forces them to confront their deepest desires in “one of the most celebrated novels of the year” (Time) “Reading this novel is like holding a live wire in your hand.”—Vulture Named one of the Best Books of the Year by more than twenty publications, including The New York Times Book Review, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Time, Vogue, Esquire, Vulture, and Autostraddle PEN/Hemingway Award Winner • Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Gotham Book Prize • Longlisted for The Women’s Prize • Roxane Gay’s Audacious Book Club Pick • New York Times Editors’ Choice Reese almost had it all: a loving relationship with Amy, an apartment in New York City, a job she didn't hate. She had scraped together what previous generations of trans women could only dream of: a life of mundane, bourgeois comforts. The only thing missing was a child. But then her girlfriend, Amy, detransitioned and became Ames, and everything fell apart. Now Reese is caught in a self-destructive pattern: avoiding her loneliness by sleeping with married men. Ames isn't happy either. He thought detransitioning to live as a man would make life easier, but that decision cost him his relationship with Reese—and losing her meant losing his only family. Even though their romance is over, he longs to find a way back to her. When Ames's boss and lover, Katrina, reveals that she's pregnant with his baby—and that she's not sure whether she wants to keep it—Ames wonders if this is the chance he's been waiting for. Could the three of them form some kind of unconventional family—and raise the baby together? This provocative debut is about what happens at the emotional, messy, vulnerable corners of womanhood that platitudes and good intentions can't reach. Torrey Peters brilliantly and fearlessly navigates the most dangerous taboos around gender, sex, and relationships, gifting us a thrillingly original, witty, and deeply moving novel.

Book The Routledge Companion to Politics and Literature in English

Download or read book The Routledge Companion to Politics and Literature in English written by Matthew Stratton and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2023-05-31 with total page 661 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Routledge Companion to Politics and Literature in English provides an interdisciplinary overview of the vibrant connections between literature, politics, and the political. Featuring contributions from 44 scholars across a variety of disciplines, the collection is divided into five parts: Connecting Literature and Politics; Constituting the Polis; Periods and Histories; Media, Genre, and Techne; and Spaces. Organized around familiar concepts—such as humans, animals, workers, empires, nations, and states—rather than theoretical schools, it will help readers to understand the ways in which literature affects our understanding of who is capable of political action, who has been included in and excluded from politics, and how different spaces are imagined to be political. It also offers a series of engagements with key moments in literary and political history from 1066 to the present in order to assess and reassess the utility of conventional modes of periodization. The book extends current discussions in the area, looking at cutting-edge developments in the discipline of literary studies, which will appeal to academics and researchers seeking to orient their own interventions within broader contexts.

Book Doing It All

Download or read book Doing It All written by Ruby Russell and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2024-02-29 with total page 262 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A feminist exploration of single motherhood and a passionate call to reclaim the power of mothering. Nearly a quarter of UK families with dependent children are single-parent families, and around 90% of single parents are women. Yet the single mother is still cast as victim or welfare queen, sexually irresponsible or too independent by half. Tracing a history through Victorian brothels, welfare rights activism and Black feminist traditions of othermothering, Ruby Russell tells a different story: of motherhood defined not by marriage or men, but as a nexus of solidarity beyond the patriarchal status quo. A personal quest for empowerment, Doing It All is also a fierce critique of the structures that leave single mums marginalised and exhausted - and a call to reclaim mothering as the life force of sustainable, connected and radically responsible communities.

Book Learning to Love

    Book Details:
  • Author : Lorraine Rose
  • Publisher : Aust Council for Ed Research
  • Release : 2000
  • ISBN : 0864313659
  • Pages : 155 pages

Download or read book Learning to Love written by Lorraine Rose and published by Aust Council for Ed Research. This book was released on 2000 with total page 155 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'Learning to Love: The Developing Relationships between Mother, Father, and Baby During the First Year' is an informative and engaging book for new and expectant parents that explores the evolving relationship between mother, father and baby. Focusing on the first year of life, it looks at the emotional dimension of becoming a parent and offers an understanding of the baby's emotional needs. Author Lorraine Rose understands the hopes and fears that every new parent has. In 'Learning to Love' she describes how the process of becoming a parent puts a person in touch with feelings and with memories of their own infancy and childhood. These can help parents relate to their own child, or can make it more painful and difficult. 'Learning to Love' reveals the emotional intensity of pregnancy, childbirth and the first year of parenting. It brings alive the reality of the baby's emotional world and looks at how relationship and love grow and how emotional growth can be felt and enjoyed. Lorraine shows parents how they can learn from their baby as it grows, and how both the baby and parent can guide each other. She reassures parents about the daily subtle shifts in feeling and confidence they will experience as they and their baby gradually come to know, trust and understand each other. The delicacy of this relationship is sensitively, reassuringly and informatively described. A capacity to 'read' each other develops within the parent and the baby. It is this capacity that lays the foundation for empathy with others and for future intimate relationships. 'Learning to Love' examines the key mental and emotional milestones in the first 12 months, parents' changing relationship with each other as well as their baby, and common parenting dilemmas. Unlike many books about early parenthood, 'Learning to Love' gives important information about the emotional lives of infants and their parents.
