Editorial Reviews

Review

Detransition, Baby is so good I want to scream.”—Carmen Maria Machado

“This book is exhilaratingly good.”
—Jia Tolentino

“An unforgettable portrait of three women, trans and cis, who wrestle with questions of motherhood and family making . . .
Detransition, Baby might destroy your book club, but in a good way.”—Andrea Lawlor, author of Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl

“A tale of love, loss, and self-discovery as singular as it is universal, and all the sweeter for it.”
Entertainment Weekly

“It’s the smartest novel I’ve read in ages. I wish I could figure out how it manages to be utterly savage & lacerating while also conveying endlessly expanding compassion. It’s kind of a miracle.”
—Garth Greenwell

“If I had the ability to momentarily wipe my memory, I’d use it to reread
Detransition, Baby for the first time.”Vogue

“Even the most complimentary adjectives feel insufficient to describe Torrey Peters’ first novel.”
Bookpage (starred review)

“This emotionally devastating, culturally specific, endlessly intelligent novel is . . . really,
really funny.”Austostraddle

“A fiercely confident novel.”
O: The Oprah Magazine

“With heart and savvy, [
Detransition, Baby upends] our traditional, gendered notions of what parenthood can look like.”TheNew York Times Book Review

“[Peters] confronts the unruliness of our desires, and our vitality as we struggle within their limits.”
The New Yorker

“[An] electrifying debut . . .  a deeply searching novel that resists easy answers.”
Esquire

“Peters’s soap opera-meets-modern-cultural-analysis is witty, emotional, and eye-opening.”
People

“[Peters gets] to the very heart of what it means to exist as a gendered being in the world.”
them
 
“Funny and gossipy and insightful and cutting and absolutely delicious, all while tackling issues from a lens that has been missing from the literary world for way too long.”
Refinery29

“‘[Detransition, Baby] is going to play a role in defining the literature of 2021 and beyond.”The Millions

“Plenty of books are good; this book is alive.”
Jordy Rosenberg, author of Confessions of the Fox
