CANCELLED- Slack Pussy Session 8: “Trans: A Memoir” (2015) by Juliet Jacques, chosen by Chris Kraus

January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This session has been postponed for Thursday 15th February 7-9pm.

 

Slack Pussy Session 8: “Trans: A Memoir” (2015) by Juliet Jacques. Chosen by Chris Kraus

This is what Kraus says:

“Juliet Jacques is a generally brilliant person, and I’ve just watched her new film, ‘You Will Be Free’, and found it devastating… but the reason I suggested ‘Trans: A Memoir’, the reason it sticks in my mind, is that it’s the most writerly treatment on the subject of transitioning – and the most writerly recent memoir – I know. By that I mean that Jacques is never self-serving; she is truly interrogatory, and not afraid of irresolution – the book ends in a place of hauntingly life-like ambivalence.”

We will be reading an extract from Jacques’s book; please contact slackpuss.rg@gmail.com for a pdf.
