Our Book of the Week is a whip smart and thoughtful memoir by Carrie Marshall. Carrie Kills A Man is about growing up in a world that doesn’t want you, and about how it feels to throw a hand grenade into what appears to everyone else to be a perfect middle-class life. It’s the story of how a tattooed transgender rock singer stopped being a depressed suburban dad and started being her authentic self.
When more people think they’ve seen a ghost than met a trans person, it’s easy to believe misconceptions about someone you’ve never met. A great start is to read about the life of Carrie Marshall.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
