"Brave, funny, edgy, and enlightening;ŽI loved it and learned from it. Kate Bornstein shares her fascinating journey-through gender, Scientology, and more-and it was a thrill to tag along on the ride. This book is unbelievably powerful and affecting. If Kate Bornstein didn't exist, we would have to invent her." -Dan Savage

"Kate boldly lets us look under the hood of her own transformations as Jew, Scientologist, boy, girl, Buddhist, and parent, leaving us with a richer understanding of the true identity underneath: human. A Queer and Pleasant Danger is a page-turner, making sweet love to the paradoxes we all face." -Amanda Palmer, musician and cofounder of the Dresden Dolls

  

"Breathless, passionate, and deeply honest, A Queer and Pleasant Danger is a wonderful book. Read it and learn." -Samuel R. Delany, author of Dhalgren
