I picked up three books this week; two to review for Pride in June, and one is Elizabeth Acavedo’s newest, With The Fire On High. I recently reviewed her fantastic The Poet X, so I’m really looking forward to this one. (And that cover is spectacular!) The two I requested for Pride month are House of Nutter: The Rebel Tailor of Savile Row and Unbound: Transgender Men and the Remaking of Identity, both nonfiction. I’ve already started Unbound, and it’s looking to be quite good. The author is lesbian, so not only is it LGBT-themed, but LGBT-written as well, even though it isn’t #ownvoices. She’s a sociologist, though, so she brings that academic background to the table, too.
Edit: Unbound is NOT recommended, I will be publishing a review in July detailing my issues with it.
