Description

Through a comprehensive exploration of historical conventions, genres, character diversity, and ideologies of trans representation, Emily Corbett traces the roots of trans literature from its beginnings in a cisgender-dominated publishing world to the recent rise in trans creators, characters, and implied readers.

Corbett’s encyclopedic knowledge of trans YA literature buoys her close readings of C.B. Lee’s Not Your Villain (2017), Akwaeke Emezi’s Pet (2019), and other works, providing an incisive overview of trends in trans representation over the past twenty years. This perceptive inquiry enthralls." - Publishers Weekly

"Emily Corbett unravels a vast archive of contemporary trans YA literature published in the UK and the US. The myriad theoretical approaches and impeccable close readings are sure to delight readers." - Libe García Zarranz, author of TransCanadian Feminist Fictions: New Cross-Border Ethics

Emily Corbett is a lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London, specializing in children’s and young adult literature. She also serves as general editor for the International Journal of Young Adult Literature.
