Description

Two-time BC Book Prize finalist (Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize and the Jim Deva Prize for Writing that Provokes)

Ivan Coyote is one of North America's preeminent storytellers and performers, and the author, co-author, or co-editor of eleven previous books, all but one of which have been published by Arsenal Pulp Press. Their most recent book, Tomboy Survival Guide, was shortlisted for the Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction, named an American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book, and longlisted for Canada Reads.

In their latest, Ivan takes on the patriarchy and the political, as well as the intimate and the personal in these beguiling and revealing stories of what it means to be trans and non-binary today, at a time in their life when they must carry the burden of heartbreaking history with them, while combatting those who would misgender them or deny their very existence. These stories span thirty years of tackling TERFs, legislators, and bathroom police, sure, but there is joy and pleasure and triumph to be found here too, as Ivan pays homage to personal heroes like the late Leslie Feinberg while gently guiding younger trans folk to prove to themselves that there is a way out of the darkness.

Rebent Sinner is the work of an accomplished artist whose plain truths about their experience will astound readers with their utter, breathtaking humanity.

Editorial Reviews

Coyote ought to be recognized as one of Canadaâ??s great humorists â?¦ A lot of grit and a lot of heart. -The Globe and Mail


If you've never read Coyote's work, this is a fine place to start; it's a delightful and passionate example of the candor, humor, resilience and compassion that has made Coyote a beloved hero for whom we are (mostly) undeserving. -Ms. Magazine


There's humour in this book, alongside pathos and bathos and Joan Armatrading and everything else you'd want from a collection of true stories ... Rebent Sinner is a book you need to read. -Toronto Star


Coyote brilliantly nestles kindred moments together and makes the ordinary magical ... Their writing has a generous quality to it in the way it appeals to everyone's humanity while still firmly advocating for equity, compassion, understanding, and safety for LGBTQ2S+ people, especially trans and/or gender non-conforming youth. -Quill and Quire (STARRED REVIEW)


Coyote describes the burdens of representation that saddle LGBTQ writers and performers, and ponders the legacy of their own generation of trans artists. Audiences interested in the conversation on trans identities will welcome Coyote's direct style and compassionate voice. -Publishers Weekly
