Win a signed copy of Detransition, Baby – plus five brilliant LGBTQ+ books, recommended by Torrey Peters

Celebrate Pride this June with Torrey Peters

Detransition, Baby tells the story of Reese and her ex Ames, who has detransitioned – and is now having a baby with his boss, Katrina. This remarkable book is a uniquely trans take on love, motherhood, and those exes who you just can't quit.

To celebrate Pride Month, we're giving you the chance to win a signed copy of Torrey Peters' Women's Prize-longlisted Detransition, Baby plus five other amazing LGBTQ+ reads. From Shon Faye's landmark argument for justice to Carmen Maria Machado's genre-defying short stories, this is an incredible selection to add to your bookshelf.

Torrey recommends: 

Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado: "There is no one else who tells stories with the humor, strange fury, and edge of eroticism that Carmen Maria Machado mixes up."

The Queens of Sarmiento Park by Camila Sosa Villada: "Honestly, this book takes on many of the same themes as my own book – trans motherhood, bad men, queer community, but in a Latin American context rife with surrealism, humor, and tragedy. It forced me to reconsider new ideas about subjects I thought I was expert in."

The Transgender Issue by Shon Faye: "Everything you might want to know about, yes, 'The Transgender Issue', in lucid prose and argument. Probably the best book on the politics of being trans."

X by Davey Davis: "The noir adventures of a sadist in a near-future dystopian Brooklyn. Think Dennis Cooper meets Dashiell Hammett."

Tell Me I'm Worthless by Alison Rumfitt: "There's a joke that one of the dominant horror plots over the last 200 years is: 'There is a weird house!...' But really, this time, the house truly is weird! The girl who spent a night in there is not okay! You should read it."

10 Caboodlers will also receive a signed copy of Detransition, Baby.
