Leslie Feinberg is phenomenal because her writings remain extremely relevant to this day, which I find especially impressive because the field of gender studies evolves so quickly. Oftentimes I pick up a gender studies book and just from the vocabulary can tell it's dated, but that never happened to me while reading this book. The concepts Feinberg presents are before their time. If you liked Stone Butch Blues, I promise you'll like Feinberg's nonfiction just as much; it's written in a way that is personal, engaging, inspiring, welcoming, and at times poetic.
