Celebrated transsexual trailblazer Kate Bornstein has, with more humor and spunk than any other, ushered us into a world of limitless possibility through a daring re-envisionment of the gender system as we know it. Here, Bornstein bravely and wittily shares personal and unorthodox methods of survival in an often cruel world. A one-of-a-kind guide to staying alive outside the box, Hello, Cruel World is a much-needed unconventional approach to life for those who want to stay on the edge, but alive. Hello, Cruel World features a catalog of 101 alternatives to suicide that range from the playful (moisturize!), to the irreverent (shatter some family values), to the highly controversial. Designed to encourage readers to give themselves permission to unleash their hearts' harmless desires, the book has only one directive: "Don't be mean." It is this guiding principle that brings its reader on a self-validating journey, which forges wholly new paths toward a resounding decision to choose life. Tenderly intimate and unapologetically edgy, Kate Bornstein is the radical role model, the affectionate best friend, and the guiding mentor all in one.

As she became increasingly immersed in the world of adult competition (participating in the Gay Games and the Adult Nationals), she found herself focusing her research on the world of skating. These essays reflect on the sexualization of female skaters, the hairdos and costumes, and racial bias in movement genres and athletic standards.

DEAD SERIOUS combines case histories, narratives, and straight facts and asks youth and adults to consider the finality of suicide and ways in which they can help curb the alarming number of young people who take their own lives. DEAD SERIOUS presents ways of coping with such tragic losses and encourages readers to consider some of the major factors that may contribute to youth suicides. It alerts readers to warning signals which often precede suicide. Most important, DEAD SERIOUS tells young people and adults what to do and what not to do when dealing with a young person who is depressed and possibly suicidal. The chapter on active listening skills details specific listening techniques one can use when helping a friend or relative through a problem. An excellent book for use in courses in death education and peer counseling, DEAD SERIOUS takes suicide out of the hands of the statisticians and into the hearts and minds of young people and adults who are eager for accurate information and the specific skills to use when confronted with someone who is thinking about suicide.

"The fifteen women featured in this volume are some of the best writers currently engaged in avant-garde literary production, defining the contours of new movements and schools of writing. By showcasing their work alongside extensive interviews, Prismatic Publics stages intimate encounters with these key figures as they work in and against feminist, Language, conceptual, investigative and other poetic traditions - often across, between and at the interstices of genres." "Gathered in a single volume, these selections - some dating back to the early 1970s and others appearing in print for the first time - provide an opportunity to trace the diverse networks, influences, dialogues, dialectics and interventions that continue to make Canada's innovative womenwriters a powerful force in avant-garde writing around the world."--BOOK JACKET.
