I Live a Life Like Yours: A Memoir
* A New York Times Editors' Choice * Publishers Weekly Best Nonfiction Books of 2021 *
I am not talking about surviving. I am not talking about becoming human, but about how I came to realize that I had always already been human. I am writing about all that I wanted to have, and how I got it. I am writing about what it cost, and how I was able to afford it.
