The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You 

S. Bear Bergman (Arsenal Pulp)

S. Bear Bergman is a natural storyteller. As a trans-Jewish writer, Bergman is navigating uncharted literary terrain, writing “hirself” (the pronoun used in the book) into the ever-expanding landscape of contemporary queer Canadian literature. Bergman writes about hir personal experience in day-to-day life in first person without the guise of fiction. With heartbreaking honesty, ferocious wit and humour, Bergman is the best thing since hir comrade Ivan Coyote came along. Some writers just translate a story, best kept to the bound and printed page, Bergman’s work is meant to be read out loud. This collection of essays can coax readers into stitches as quickly as it can tears.
