Reviews

Praise for Redefining Realness

"Far too many assume that Janet Mock's story is primarily about her body. This book is irrefutable evidence that Janet must be understood through her intellect, spirit, and wit. Janet does what only great writers of autobiography accomplish--she tells a story of the self, which turns out to be a reflection of all humanity. You will be changed by this book."--Melissa Harris-Perry, Wake Forest University Professor
"Janet Mock is a glamorous, smarty-pants writer and activist.... Her book about her life as a transwoman, Redefining Realness, isn't just a service to the trans community but to every woman - hell, person - who has struggled with identity."--Lena Dunham, actress and author of Not That Kind of Girl
"Redefining Realness is a riveting, emotional, crisply written testimony. I couldn't put it down. I aspire to be as unflinchingly brave! Janet Mock's story simultaneously embodies, complicates, and subverts the concept of American exceptionalism and self-creation."--Laverne Cox, actress, advocate, and star of Orange Is the New Black
Praise for Surpassing Certainty

"Brimming with liberated self-discovery, Mock's conversational memoir is smoothly written with plenty of insight and personal perspective....A defining chronicle of strength and spirit particularly remarkable for younger readers."--Kirkus Reviews
