Little FishBook - 2018
Lambda Literary Award winner Casey Plett's latest, in which a trans woman learns her grandfather may have been trans himself.
In this debut novel by the author of the Lambda Literary Award-winning story collection A Safe Girl to Love , Wendy Reimer is a thirty-year-old trans woman in Winnipeg who comes across evidence that her late grandfather--a devout Mennonite farmer--might have been transgender himself. At first she dismisses this revelation, having other problems at hand, but as she and her friends struggle to cope with their increasingly volatile lives--which range from alcoholism, to sex work, to suicide--Wendy grows increasingly drawn to the lost pieces of her grandfather's life, becoming determined to unravel the mystery of his truth.
Alternately warm-hearted and dark-spirited, desperate and mirthful, Little Fish explores the winter of discontent in the life of one transgender woman as her past and future become irrevocably entwined.
