5.0 out of 5 stars Finally 17 Mar. 2014
By Homecoming Queef - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An honest portrayal of a trans woman by a trans woman. Imogen Binnie is kind of my hero. She's weird and funny and incredibly smart and this book reflects her personality beautifully. In addition to its refreshingly frank description of a trans woman going through things most people in their twenties and thirties can relate to, this book also offers some biting commentary on the current state of Brooklyn hipster culture. This is an excellent book and no doubt an important one. My only critique is that the manuscript still desperately needs a good proofreader. It really isn't press ready. It needs someone who can preserve Imogen's idiosyncratic prose but fix the many typos, including the one instance in which the tense betrays the story's roots in memoir.

5.0 out of 5 stars a novel novel 17 Mar. 2013
By Madeleine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you've gotten this far, you will probably enjoy Nevada. It is not as if you were trying to decide between Nevada and the latest James Patterson book, right? Or, maybe you are, and Nevada will make no sense to you.

Nevada is a novel about a transsexual person, but it is not about transition. In that respect, it is self-consciously alone in its genre. Given that it's the author's first book, and given that the product description makes it sound like trite, un-edited pulp, it is surprisingly well-written in an absolute sense, and was a pleasure to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 15 Mar. 2016
By Donna S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The thing that is most extraordinary about this novel should not be. Nevada shows a transperson as a fully complex human being. Personal and societal experience with gender is explored, but not in a vacuum. It is wonderful to see fully rounded characters addressing issues that feel real.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice, cliched narratives that cis folks want/expect 18 Nov. 2014
By Drew Cordes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An important trans/queer work of art. Trans art for trans people from Topside Press. Not the pandering, neat, nice, cliched narratives that cis folks want/expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally! 6 April 2013
By Samuel Rafael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Somehow I find that I am at a loss to say much about this stunning novel as I am still assimilating it and trying to understand it `cause it hit me like a train wreck. Totally. Although I feel I must say something or blow loudly into some heralding trumpet, words fail me as I sit here in awe.

In her stunning novel, as a keen observer of the gender dysphoric experience, the author slices into every conceivable permutation of transgenderism with surgical precision, examining from all angles the nooks and crannies of the minds of her creations. Penned in a very unusual stream of consciousness style that exposes that "little voice" in the minds of her characters for what it is, the novelist examines and dissects every thought and every thought behind every thought, peering ever deeper and deeper into the psyche of those about whom she writes. The desired result happens to be totally great and I cannot say enough good things about this novel.

On the one hand, I think the author totally "nailed it," but with dropped jaw, I cannot say exactly what she nailed, but somehow I know it was important and we are witnessing something great happening here. Totally. Although I am embarrassed to admit that I do not know exactly what it was, I think the power of this book is that it exposes and eviscerates the bi-gendered model of society and is an indictment of the paternalistic medical model of transgenderism. Totally.

That the author's characters happen to be trans, gay and/or drug addled, socially challenged, codependent, lacking in self-esteem, purpose and moral fabric, provides a great backdrop and makes for a very interesting ride to say the least.

This book is an amazing experience and not to be missed. Totally.
