A Queer and Pleasant Danger: A Memoir
A Queer and Pleasant Danger: A Memoir by Kate Bornstein
Scientologist, husband, father, tranny, sailor, slave, playwright, dyke, gender outlaw - these are just a few words that have define Kate Bornstein during her extraordinary life. It all comes together in A Queer and Pleasant Danger, Bornstein's stunningly original memoir that's set to change lives and enrapture readers.
"Kate Bornstein's journey from moon-eyed Scientologist to queer icon is harrowing, heartbreaking, and amazing. This narrative is surely not for the squeamish. And yet, in the story of a sea dog named Al who became a trans goddess named kate, we see the mess, unsettling, inspiring struggle of a lady trying - and at last succeeding - to let her own soul be known. Disturbing and wondrous." - Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of She's Not There and I'm Looking Through You.
