ల Read Hardcover [ Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More ] ಊ By Janet Mock ಗ Far too many assume that Janet Mock s story is primarily about her body This book is irrefutable evidence that Janet must be understood through her intellect, spirit, and wit Janet does what only great writers of autobiography accomplishshe tells a story of the self, which turns out to be a reflection of all humanity You will be changed by this book Melissa Harris Perry, Wake Forest University Professor and host of MSNBC s Melissa Harris Perry Janet Mock is a glamorous, smarty pants writer and activist Her book about her life as a transwoman, Redefining Realness, isnt just a service to the trans community but to every woman hell, person who has struggled with identity Lena Dunham, actress and author of Not That Kind of Girl Courageous Told with a spirit of raw honesty that moves beyond confession to redemptive revelation, this book is a life map for transformationfor changing minds A heart rending autobiography of love, longing, and fulfillment bell hooks, feminist, social activist, and author of All About Love Redefining Realness is a classic American autobiography Like Richard Wright and Maya Angelou, Janet Mock brings us into a world we may not know and with breathtaking insight, courage, and masterful craft makes her story universal Barbara Smith, author of the Truth That Never Hurts Writings on Race, Gender, and Freedom, co founder of Kitchen Table Women of Color Press Janet Mocks groundbreaking book is testimony to the remarkable progress trans people have achieved over the last decade and shines a bright light on the work that still needs to be done Mocks clear, lucid prose will open hearts and minds, and further the goals of equality and justice not just for trans people, but for everyone Redefining Realness is loving, searing, and true Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of Shes Not There and Stuck in the Middle With You Redefining Realness is a riveting, emotional, crisply written testimony I couldn t put it down I aspire to be as unflinchingly brave Janet Mock s story simultaneously embodies, complicates, and subverts the concept of American exceptionalism and self creation Laverne Cox, actress, advocate, and star of Orange Is the New Black Defining oneself is a revolutionary act, and, as described in her memoir, Janet Mock fiercely fought to free herself with exquisite bravery and sensitivity Redefining Realness is full of hope, dreams, and determination It is a true American girl story Michaela angela Davis, Image Activist Writer CNN Contributor Every Cinderella story has its problematic step parents to maneuver around, and its metaphorical fireplaces to clean, before the heroine is whisked off to the ball Janet Mocks is no exception But the real magic here is not of the fairy tale kind Redefining Realness overflows with the everyday magic of survival and resiliency in low income communities of color, of loving kindness bursting through the cracks of a hard reality, and of the life sustaining bonds of family, friendships, and a powerful trans sisterhood Susan Stryker, author of Transgender History and Associate Professor of Gender and Womens Studies and Director of the Institute for LGBT, University of Arizona Janet Mock s honest and sometimes searing journey is a rare and important look into la vida liminal, one that she manages to negotiate remarkably well, with grace, humor, and fierce grit Mock doesn t only redefine what realness means to her, but challenges us to rethink our own perceptions of gender and sexuality, feminism and sisterhood, making this book a transcendent piece of American literature Raquel Cepeda, author of Bird of Paradise How I Became Latina An eye opening and unapologetic story that is much greater than mere disclosure An enlightening, much needed perspective on transgender identity Kirkus Reviews Mock defies the historically apolitical confines of the transgender memoir, and draws bright lines connecting her experiences to the larger realm of social justice, with a keen political eye that uses her individual experience to elucidate the wider condition of trans women of color in the U.S Her vivid prose arouses every sense Although the book is ostensibly one womans coming of age story, Mock fulfills grander purposes here in coming to terms with her own difficult journey she also uses that experience didactically, as if to take the uninitiated, non transgender reader with her, most certainly achieving realness Publishers Weekly intelligent and educational Recommended for lovers of memoirs and for readers with sincere interest in the subject matter Library Journal A classic feminist coming of age story thats worthy of your mantel Her memoir recounts a life that is both hardscrabble and hard fought, making for a must read book that is at turns riveting and wonderfully emotionally nuanced The Advocate Pardon the hyperbole, but Janet Mock may be the best person ever A beautiful, powerful memoir Rookie A fiery success The Atlantic The beauty of Mocks memoir is that it is both personal and universal her story is her own, but it also transcends the specificity of her life narrative to touch all of us Lambda Literary Redefining Realness is a rare autobiography in that it reads less like a memoir and like a conversation with a homegirl It made me feel like I was on my couch with a friend sharing secrets rather than reading a carefully constructed narrative That, I think, is a gift Crunk Feminist Collective Mocks grace in handling complexity is matched by her frankness, and she talks race, class, and intersectional politics without ever sounding polemical The Rumpus Mocks compelling memoir entrancingly chronicles the story of a multiracial trans womans becoming within a society that is still widely antagonistic to the non White, non male, transgender, and economically challenged among us Mock has written herself into herstory And she has done so with clarity and poetic brilliance The Feminist Wire Janet Mock shares that which society tells us to keep secret and uses it not only to strengthen herself, and empower other girls but also to educate For Books Sake Heres the short version of my review go buy it and read it now Mock brings the same bravery and fierce determination that is evident in her history to the writing of the book, claiming her own story and making sure experiences that have often been used to dehumanize trans women and reduce us to our transition status instead serve to give the reader a full and honest glimpse of her humanity Feministing Redefining Realness details a truly American story Its poor heroine winning independence, success, and love through intelligence, determination, and hard work makes it timeless Its portrait of a society grappling with issues of fragmented families, race, drug addiction, abuse, sex work, poverty, sexual orientation, and gender identity make it timely and relevant than anyone expecting a transgender memoir could possibly predict The Daily Dot A memoir that takes the coming of age narrative to both a higher and deeper level Slate It s fully intersectional, deliciously activist, wonderfully unapologetic, brazen, and beautiful I love Mock s book because, like the best feminist reads, its really about the insight that telling stories can be a revolutionary act Laura Ciolkowski, Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Social Difference and Adjunct Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia UniversityJanet Mock is a writer, TV host, and advocate tackling stigma through storytelling With a Masters in journalism from New York
