A voraciously knowing, compulsively readable novel’ Chris Kraus

‘Tremendously funny and sexy as hell’ Juliet Jacques

‘Emotionally generous, richly textured, and deeply intelligent’ Claire Lombardo

Reese nearly had it all: a loving relationship with Amy, an apartment in New York, a job she didn’t hate. She’d scraped together a life previous generations of trans women could only dream of; the only thing missing was a child. Then everything fell apart and three years on Reese is still in self-destruct mode, avoiding her loneliness by sleeping with married men.

When her ex calls to ask if she wants to be a mother, Reese finds herself intrigued. After being attacked in the street, Amy de-transitioned to become Ames, changed jobs and, thinking he was infertile, started an affair with his boss Katrina. Now Katrina’s pregnant.

Could the three of them form an unconventional family – and raise the baby together?
