Reviews

Rae Spoon is definitely more than a songwriter to swoon for; I predict that "First Spring Grass Fire" will be a curative for all the heartbroken kids in small towns trying to fight for their right to be who they are. This collection of tender-hearted coming-of-age stories is an impressive literary gem. --Zoe Whittall, author of "Holding Still for as Long as Possible"

"First Spring Grass Fire" will be meaningful to anyone who has struggled to fit in -- and who hasn't? By telling these stories -- of being different, queer, raised in a rigid belief system you didn't choose, trying to be yourself within circumstances you can't control -- Rae Spoon illustrates the triumph in reclaiming and controlling your own identity. This moving collection is a story of what we do to find a place, physical or intangible, that we can call home. --"National Post"

A heartbreaking, fictionalized, short-story memoir. --"Ms. Magazine"

"Transgender indie musician Rae Spoon has six albums under the belt, but this raw and beautifully lyrical new memoir-meets-novel about growing up queer in a strict Pentecostal famly with a schizophrenic father is the best contribution yet." --"The Advocate"
