Our Bookseller says:
I’ve followed Daniel Lavery since the early days of The Toast and it’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever given myself. He’s produced years on years of content that defies genre, running the gamut from terrifying (“Curious George Made Horrific” is life-changing) to gut-bustingly funny. This memoir, if you can call it that — it’s a series of musings, a collection of writings and cultural observations — is no exception.
Something That May Shock And Discredit You is named from a Simpsons quote, deservedly so: like The Simpsons this book is an immediate classic. Lavery discusses transitioning and fear, religion and regret…. along with Columbo, Apollo, classic literature, HGTV, The Golden Girls, Arthurian mythos, and so much more. It sounds totally random, but the result is a touching work about the transmasc experience, religion, and the absurdity of life. To put it simply, Daniel Lavery really gets it. – Terry
