At the Broken Places: A Mother and Trans Son Pick Up the Pieces

by Mary Collins and Donald Collins - £13.99  Beacon Press (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780807088357 | ISBN 10: 0807088358

In this collaborative memoir, a parent and a transgender son recount wrestling with their differences as Donald Collins undertook medical-treatment options to better align his body with his gender identity.
 
As a parent, Mary Collins didn’t agree with her trans son’s decision to physically alter his body, although she supported his right to realize himself as a person. Raw and uncensored, each explains her or his emotional mindset at the time: Mary felt she had lost a daughter; Donald activated his “authentic self.” Both battled to assert their rights.
 
A powerful memoir and resource, At the Broken Places offers a road map for families in transition.
