From the Inside Flap:

Winner of the American Library Association Gay & Lesbian Book Award and the Lambda Literary Award.

Woman or man? This internationally acclaimed novel looks at the world through the eyes of Jess Goldberg, a masculine girl growing up in the "Ozzie-and-Harriet" McCarthyite era and coming out as a young butch lesbian into the pre-Stonewall gay drag bars of a blue-collar town. Stone Butch Blues traces a propulsive journey, powerfully evoking history and politics while portraying an extraordinary protagonist full of longing, vulnerability, and working-class grit. This once-underground classic takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride of gender transformation and exploration and, ultimately speaks to the heart of anyone who has ever suffered or gloried in being different.

About the Author:

Leslie Feinberg is also the author of Trans Liberation, Trans Gender Warriors and Transgender Liberation, and is a noted activist and speaker on transgender issues.
