Abstract:

"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 a person born with sexual anatomy that doesn't seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. 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, reflecting on queerness, or recounting scintillating sex club adventures, Hillman's brace and fierce vision for cultural and societal change shines through."--Jacket.
