Summary

Summary

"Cyrus Grace Dunham has written a classic memoir--passionate and clear eyed and unputdownable. Bravo to this extraordinary new voice." --Mary Karr

For as long as they can remember, Cyrus Grace Dunham felt like a visitor in their own body. Their life was a series of imitations -- lovable little girl, daughter, sister, young gay woman -- until their profound sense of alienation became intolerable. This is the story of their search for a new name.

Rather than looking back on gender transition from a settled distance, Cyrus invites us into the process as it unfolds, honoring the messiness, confusion, self-doubt, terror, and thrill of self-discovery.
Signaling the arrival of a boldly original young writer with a knock-out page presence, A Year Without a Name is a searching, lyrical memoir of transformation as well as a delicately observed portrait of youth.

Editorial Reviews

“Lucid, unvarnished prose makes the book compulsively readable even as it wrestles with the weightiness of transition and identity.” O, The Oprah Magazine
