Maia Kobabe$19.99 $18.59
Carmen Maria Machado$16.00 $14.88
Carmen Maria Machado's swirling, experimental forms lead the reader through this memoir of relationship abuse survival and emotional redemption.
Ariel Levy$17.00 $15.81
One of my favorite memoirs ever. Beautifully written narrative of what it feels like when life just doesn't end up the way you thought it would. Written by a (very talented) bisexual author.
Josh Kilmer-Purcell$17.99 $16.73
Ten months in the life of a drag queen named Aqua by night/PR pro by day involved in a turbulent romance with a male escort/call boy. Funny, immediate, riveting.
Mira Jacob$20.00 $18.60
In this graphic memoir, Jacob explores the messy bonds of family through the lens of growing up as a child of Indian immigrants in New Mexico in the 80s and being the mother of a biracial child in New York City in the 2010s. Not explicitly about LGBTQIA+ identity, but includes portions of her (awkward, hilarious) experiences as a bisexual woman.
Alison Bechdel$17.99 $16.73
The now-classic graphic memoir that went on to become a hit broadway show. Bechdel explores the relationship with her troubled, closeted father after his suicide while reflecting on her own lesbian coming of age. Read one, see the other.
Charles M Blow$15.99 $14.87
Searing memoir by NYT columnist Charles Blow. Recently adapted into an opera of the same name by Terence Blanchard, the first opera by a Black composer to be performed by the Metropolitan Opera.
Subtitle says it all
Jazz Jennings$10.99 $10.22
Eye-opening and candid memoir from an extremely poised young woman who knew who she was from a very young age.
David Sedaris$17.99 $16.73
I couldn't decide whether to put Sedaris in the LGBTQ+ Memoirs or Voice-driven personal essay collections lists so I've got one each of my favorites in each list. This book has more childhood stories so leans more toward memoir. Signature Sedaris — caustic wit mixed with poignancy and insight.
