Faltas: Letters to Everyone in My Hometown Who Isn’t My Rapist

 Author: Cecilia Gentili  Category: Biography & Autobiography  Publisher: Littlepuss Press  Published: October 4, 2022  ISBN: 1736716824  Pages: 208  Language: English  Tags: Trans Woman / Femme Author |  Alibris  Amazon  Publisher  Find in a Library

“A rich and moving epistolary memoir about transgender childhood, sexual trauma, motherhood, and a young queer life in 1970s Argentina.

In these hilarious and heartbreaking letters, Cecilia Gentili reinvents the trans memoir, putting the confession squarely between the writer and her enemies, paramours and friends.

Writing to childhood figures such as her rapist’s daughter, her father’s mistress, her best friend, and her mother, Gentili probes deeply into the bitter cruelty, buried secrets, and delicious gossip of a small town.

Is she here for revenge, or forgiveness? Both! And more! A story of sex, theft, murder, motherhood, and outrageous fashion choices, Faltas is a beautiful, messy meditation on what it takes to heal, and even grow.”–Publisher’s description.
