Green shoots, green leaves, California green vesicles beneath the California green-brown mud. A hormonal transition is a new start, but it is not a new start like a shoot emerges from the mud: it is a fresh start constructed from the green plastics one has to hand.

A speculative memoir of gender transition and recovery from addiction, refracted through pop culture, queer theory, film, TV, literature, and (what feels like) stand-up comedy - like The Argonauts caught in a hall of mirrors, with a lot more sex and humour.
Author: Grace Lavery
Paperback Published April 2022 288 pages

'This is the queer memoir you've been waiting for; a dizzying mix of theory 
and pastiche, metafiction and memory. Please Miss is Terry Castle meets Lauren Slater meets Michelle Tea; hilarious and sexy and terrifying in its brilliance. But don't worry - Lavery is an avalanche you'll be glad to be buried under.' - Carmen Maria Machado, author of In the Dream House

'This book reframes the question of transition from the familiar journey 
from A to B, and replaces that journey with a can't-look-away performance of wit, language, irreverence, and delight so compelling that a reader forgets about destinations all together.' - Torrey Peters, author of Detransition, Baby
