Bear's books are considered seminal texts on the subject of trans life. Each is infused with smarts, wit, honesty, reflection and humour.
Butch Is A Noun In thirty-four deeply personal essays, Bear makes butchness accessible to those who are new to the concept, and makes gender outlaws of all stripes feel as though they have come home.
The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You Alternately unsettling and affirming, devastating and delicious, The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You is a collection of essays on gender and identity that is irrevocably honest and endlessly illuminating.
Blood, Marriage, Wine & Glitter In his third essay collection, Bear enters, describes, and rearranges our ideas about family as a daughter, husband, father, and friend. Defiantly queer yet full of tenderness and hilarity, Blood, Marriage, Wine & Glitter is a beautifully thought-provoking book that redefines the notion of what family is and can be.
