5) “Detransition, Baby” By Torrey Peters
Torrey Peter’s provocative debut novel “Detransition, Baby” fearlessly explores the taboos of sex, gender, identity, and relationships through thoughtful, witty, and original prose.
Peters tells a story of the queer community, complex relationships, and creating a world we want to live in. This novel has been hailed as the first great trans realist novel. The story follows three women, both transgender and cisgender, whose lives collide after an unexpected pregnancy. Together, they must confront their innermost thoughts on sex, motherhood, and the true meaning of desire.
