About the Event
Join American novelist Torrey Peters, in conversation with author and journalist Juno Dawson, to celebrate the publication of Detransition, Baby: a uniquely trans take on love, motherhood, and those exes you just can't quit.
Reese nearly had it all: a loving relationship with Amy, an apartment in New York, a job she didn’t hate. She’d scraped together a life previous generations of trans women could only dream of; the only thing missing was a child. Then everything fell apart and three years on Reese is still in self-destruct mode, avoiding her loneliness by sleeping with married men.
When her ex calls to ask if she wants to be a mother, Reese finds herself intrigued. After being attacked in the street, Amy detransitioned to become Ames, changed jobs and, thinking he was infertile, started an affair with his boss Katrina. Now Katrina’s pregnant. Could the three of them form an unconventional family – and raise the baby together?
For this exclusive virtual event, Torrey and Juno will explore trans literature and the inspiration behind Torrey’s novel, which has been longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction.
This promises to be an evening of insightful, of-the-moment conversation that you do not want to miss.
The 'Stream Only' Package consists of a ticket to the Stream only. The Stream and Book package includes a ticket to the stream and a copy of Detransition, Baby (RRP £14.99).
