"Intersex (For Lack of a Better Word)" chronicles one person s search for self in a world obsessed with normal. What is intersex ? According to the Intersex Society of North America, the word describes someone born with sex chromosomes, genitalia, or an internal reproductive system that are neither clearly male nor clearly female. In first-person prose as intimate as a diary, Thea Hillman redefines memoir in a series of compelling stories that take a no-holds-barred look at sex, gender, family, and community. Whether she s pondering quirky family tendencies ( Drag ), reflecting on queerness ( Another ), or recounting scintillating adventures in San Francisco s sex clubs, Hillman s brave and fierce vision for cultural and societal change shines through."
