Coyote is to Canadian literature what k.d. lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture.” — Ottawa Xpress

FESTIVAL BOOK

Rebent Sinner

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

Coyote takes on the patriarchal 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 30 years of tackling TERFs, legislators, and bathroom police, sure, but there is joy and pleasure and triumph to be found here too, as Coyote 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.
