Becoming a non-binary writer

June 08th, 2021

Prolific Vancouver author, Keith Maillard wrote about two genderfluid people in the first of his 15 novels, Two Strand River (Press Porcepic, 1976/Harper Collins Canada, 1996). It became a cult classic but at the time it was little known Maillard himself had grown up not identifying either as a boy or a girl. It took Maillard over 60 years to understand his gender dysphoria. Now, following on the publication of his first memoir, Fatherless (W. Virginia U. Press, 2019), a second memoir, The Bridge: Writing Across the Binary (Freehand $22.95), recalls Maillard’s life of writing and the journey to understanding his non-binary identification. 978-1-988298-78-8
