Graciella McLavery, crepuscular peachfuzz

I met Grace when she was still an egg (trans talk for folx who don’t know yet that they’re trans) and think hers is perhaps the most spectacular, fully formed hatching since Minerva sprang from the head of Zeus.

Susan Stryker, author of Transgender History: The Roots of Today’s Revolution

Advance praise for Please Miss

This is the queer memoir you’ve been waiting for; a dizzying mix of theory and pastiche, metafiction and memory. PLEASE MISS is Terry Castle meets Lauren Slater meets Michelle Tea; hilarious and sexy and terrifying in its brilliance. But don’t worry—Lavery is an avalanche you’ll be glad to be buried under.

Carmen Maria Machado, author of In the Dream House

Grace Lavery’s memoir – if that’s what it is? – is a daring, perverse, mind-blowing, intellectual, hilarious, outrageous, inspired work of art that somehow is touchingly sincere while giving no fucks whatsoever. I read this laughing out loud, clutching my pearls, my mind exploding in wonder. This meditation on trans bodies, queer sex, pop culture, academia, and fantasy rips open bold and badly needed new terrain in literature.

Michelle Tea, author of Against Memoir

Hot, sick, painfully vivid.

Sophie Lewis, author of Full Surrogacy Now
