I’m not as fond of True Selves as a lot of people are. It doesn’t have much of a handle on how I understand myself and my own life, but that’s always a danger, I guess, when writing generally. The book I usually recommend is Whipping Girl by Julia Serrano. I’m also partial to Patrick Califia’s Sex Changes: The Politics of Transgenderism, but I believe that it’s currently out of print and it’s a bit on the academic side. I haven’t read the Teich book. I hope that he hasn’t fallen into the same trap as Kate Bornstein when it comes to emphasizing life beyond the binary while pushing binary-identified trans people to the margins.
Thanks for the new recommendations! And yes, I definitely think Teich’s book is more modern in scope and more inclusive of all trans/genderqueer people. It’s also worth nothing that Teich is trans himself, while the authors of True Selves are not. That might have something to do with it.
