Detransition, Baby: Torrey Peters in conversation with Abigail Thorn

Torrey Peters’ Detransition, Baby has taken the world by storm. It was the first novel by a trans author to be published by a big five publishing house and went on to be longlisted for The Women’s Prize and honored as a New York Times Editors Choice.

This whipsmart debut is about three women - transgender and cisgender - whose lives collide after an unexpected preganancy, forcing them to confront their deepest desires around gender, motherhood, and sex.

Joining Torrey to talk about the book will be Abigail Thorn, actress and creator of the wildly successful PhilosophyTube, a YouTube channel with over a million subscribers.

Torrey Peters lives in Brooklyn and holds an MFA from the University of Iowa and a Masters in Comparative Literature from Dartmouth. She is the author of two novellas, Infect Your Friends and Loved Ones and The Masker. @torreypeters
