Notes about language: Ze, ze, ze's, hir, hir's used as a third pronoun. There is also a lot of Yiddish and various other languages included. The protagonist, Max, is an obvious crossdresser: a woman in man's clothing. Max lives this persona full-time, which impacts all facets of his life. Issues include which bathroom is safest? No ID or bank accounts, works for cash only as a bouncer in a drag show bar, experiences torture at hands of police, struggles with medical care, etc. Max's best friends of many years are cross-dressers, transsexuals, genderqueers, drag queens, drag kings. The story takes place post 9/11 and includes the start of the war against Iraq. Haunting ending, leaves the reader not knowing what may happen next.
Women or man? That's the question that rages like a storm around Jess Goldberg, clouding her life and her identity.
This wonderfully immediate, impassioned, and stirring book is for anyone who cares about civil rights and creating a just and equitable society.
