'Irrevocably honest'

Alternately unsettling and affirming, The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You devastating and delicious, is a new collection of essays on gender and identity by S. Bear Bergman that is irrevocably honest and endlessly illuminating.

With humor and grace, these essays deal with issues from women's spaces to the old boys' network, from gay male bathhouses to lesbian potlucks, from being a child to preparing to have one.

Throughout, S. Bear Bergman shows us there are things you learn when you're visibly different from those around you—whether it's being transgressively gendered or readably queer. Bear offers unique perspectives on issues that challenge, complicate, and confound the "official stories" about how gender and sexuality work.
