Smart, witty, powerful, and profound book. It is also excellently narrated - great blend of emotion and lived-ness with social critique. I would highly recommend.

Liike everything Vivek does, this book is mind blowing. She offers a critical and thoughtful discussion of what it means to be masculine/a man (from the POV of a trans* women of colour who used to be identified as a queer femme man of colour who was living in white Alberta) and how women and femme people navigate spaces and their bodies out of a fear of men and masculinity. Does a fantastic job. Vivek is a wonderful poet, intellectual and writer.

Boring, predictable, and uninspired. The actors are flat and the characters are 1 dimensional. Do not recommend.
