Hello, Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws

by Kate Bornstein
£10.99   paperback  Seven Stories Press (2006)

Hello, Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws by Kate Bornstein Celebrated transgender trailblazer Kate Bornstein has, with more humour 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, Kate bravely shares personal and unorthodox methods of survival for navigating 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.
 
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 principle that guides a life-changing and self-validating journey. Tenderly intimate and unapologetically edgy, Kate is the radical role model, the affectionate best friend, and the guiding mentor all in one kind and spirited package.

"Give this book to someone you love, or to someone you're afraid of losing (even if it's yourself.Hello, Cruel World will do no less than save lives."
(T Cooper)
