Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars seeks to shatter the
traditional transgender memoir narrative and turn it on its head. The book is high-energy and full of exciting tension from the outset, and the writing keeps you glued to the page. -Britni de la Cretaz, Teen Vogue
Thom's novel is able to get at the truth of how trans femmes of color, and perhaps trans femmes and trans women generally, build and maintain
communities without reducing those experiences to statistics, to straightforward politics, or even to 'factual' generic conventions of autobiography. Instead, she confabulates, eschewing conventions which demand the truth of the matter. -Avery Everhart, Michigan Quarterly Review
With Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars, you really get the sense of creativity and invention that comes from becoming your own woman - an artist of your own identity. -Emma Watson, Our Shared Shelf book club announcement
A captivating tale of betrayal, murder, mysticism, legend and compassion. -Luna Merbruja, Autostraddle
Fierce Femmes is thrilling, fabulous, inventive. -Spencer Quong, The Paris Review
