I have not read anything so close to what I want to accomplish with my novel than Stone Butch Blues. It’s like I live alone in the world, and there was one single person who seemed to understand it all, but I will never meet hir. I missed zie by a few years: Leslie Feinberg died three months after I moved to the US. How I wish I could have hugged hir and said thank you.
Stone Butch Blues, to me, is the greatest, most important queer novel in the world, because it does not only offer an insular experience of difference. It has everything: class, race, privilege, poverty, the complexities of being stuck in the binary (way before gender fluid was even a term), the way minorities split into factions. It’s often claustrophobic, because the protagonist, Jess, spends a lot of the time alone, not being able to find either people who understand or a place to belong. And this is perhaps why Jess grasps at humanity with such hunger, that each of her interactions with others is a transformative experience.
Leslie Feinberg was a revolutionary, and zie was way ahead of her time, and even ours. And this novel is a testament to what being human is all about: just existing in this world, trying to fit into molds, and to be happy somewhere, somehow.
Stone Butch Blues Epub
Published in 1993, this brave, original novel is considered to be the finest account ever written of the complexities of a transgendered existence. Woman or man? Thats the question that rages like a storm around Jess Goldberg, clouding her life and her identity. Growing up differently gendered in a blue–collar town in the 1950s, coming out as a butch in the bars and factories of the prefeminist 60s, deciding to pass as a man in order to survive when she is left without work or a community in the early 70s. This powerful, provocative and deeply moving novel sees Jess coming full circle, she learns to accept the complexities of being a transgendered person in a world demanding simple explanations: a he-she emerging whole, weathering the turbulence.
