Publisher Comments:

Published in 1993, this brave, original novel is considered to be the finest account ever written of the complexities of a transgendered existence.

Woman or man? That’s the question that rages like a storm around Jess Goldberg, clouding her life and her identity. Growing up differently gendered in a blue--collar town in the 1950’s, coming out as a butch in the bars and factories of the prefeminist ’60s, deciding to pass as a man in order to survive when she is left without work or a community in the early ’70s. This powerful, provocative and deeply moving novel sees Jess coming full circle, she learns to accept the complexities of being a transgendered person in a world demanding simple explanations: a he-she emerging whole, weathering the turbulence.

Leslie Feinberg is also the author of Trans Liberation, Trans Gender Warriors and Transgender Liberation, and is a noted activist and speaker on transgender issues.

Synopsis:

The finest account ever written of coming to terms with the complexities of a transgendered existence.

Synopsis:

Winner of the American Library Association Gay &Lesbian Book Award and the Lambda Literary Award.

Woman or man? This internationally acclaimed novel looks at the world through the eyes of Jess Goldberg, a masculine girl growing up in the "Ozzie-and-Harriet" McCarthyite era and coming out as a young butch lesbian into the pre-Stonewall gay drag bars of a blue-collar town. Stone Butch Blues traces a propulsive journey, powerfully evoking history and politics while portraying an extraordinary protagonist full of longing, vulnerability, and working-class grit. This once-underground classic takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride of gender transformation and exploration and, ultimately speaks to the heart of anyone who has ever suffered or gloried in being different.

Synopsis:

This compelling first novel follows the sexual travails of lesbian Jess Goldberg in a fine account of coming to terms with the complexities of a transgendered existence.
