A Lambda Literary Award Finalist: from "an extraordinary new voice," a "passionate and clear-eyed and unputdownable" meditation on queerness, family, and desire (Mary Karr). For as long as they can remember, Cyrus Grace Dunham felt like a visitor in their own body. Their life was a series of imitations -- lovable little girl, daughter, sister, young gay woman -- until their profound sense of alienation became intolerable. Moving between Grace and Cyrus, Dunham brings us inside the chrysalis of gender transition, asking us to bear witness to an uncertain and exhilarating process that troubles our most basic assumptions about who we are and how we are constituted. Written with disarming emotional intensity in a voice uniquely theirs, A Year Without a Name is a potent, thrillingly unresolved queer coming of age story.Named one of Fall 2019's Most Anticipated Books by: TimeNYLONVogueELLEBuzzfeed BustleO MagazineHarper's BazaarBinding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Cyrus Grace DunhamPublisher: Little Brown and CompanyPublished: 10/15/2019ISBN: 9780316444965Pages: 176Weight: 0.65lbsSize: 8.40h x 5.40w x 0.80dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 08/15/2019Publishers Weekly 08/26/2019Booklist 09/01/2019 pg. 31
