Tango: My Childhood Backwards and in High Heels

by Justin Vivian Bond - £14.99  Feminist Press (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781558617476 | ISBN 10: 1558617477

Hailed as “the greatest cabaret artist of [V’s] generation” in the New Yorker, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond makes a brilliant literary debut with this candid and hilarious novella-length memoir.
 
With a recent diagnosis of attention deficit disorder, and news that Bond’s first lover from childhood has been imprisoned for impersonating an undercover police officer, Bond recalls in vivid detail coming of age as a trans kid. Always haunted by the knowledge of being “different,” Bond was further confused when the bully next door wanted to meet secretly. Their trysts went on for years, and made Bond acutely aware of sexual power and vulnerability.
 
With inimitable style, Bond raises issues about LBGTQ adolescence, homophobia, parenting, and sexuality, while being utterly entertaining.
