One of the most celebrated novels of 2021, Torrey Peters’ Detransition, Baby examines the lives of 3 women – transgender and cisgender – when they collide after an unexpected pregnancy forces them to confront their deepest desires.
Described by Carmen Maria Machado as “so good I want to scream”, Detransition, Baby brilliantly and fearlessly navigates the taboos around gender, sex and relationships, gifting readers a thrillingly original, witty and deeply moving novel.
Appearing live via video, Torrey speaks about her unforgettable debut with Liz Duck-Chong.
