It just occurred to me that not all of you would know that you were missing some info about my next book by *not* reading Damian McNicholl’s interview with me. The last question he asked was:
DMN: Are you working on anything new?
to which I responded:
HB: Iâ€™m working on a book now called Boy Meets Girl, which is about the things I’ve learned about gender in relationships as a result of being with Betty and as a result of meeting a lot of gender variant people since I published My Husband Betty. What I’ve noticed is that until or unless thereâ€™s a problem with gender, itâ€™s invisible. We make huge assumptions about who a person is and who theyâ€™re supposed to be as a partner and lover based on gender â€“ and I came into this relationship thinking I was pretty smart about gender, and didnâ€™t do any of those things. But when your husband starts wondering if he should transition (thatâ€™s the PC term for a â€˜sex changeâ€™ these days), you have to think a lot harder about gender, and learn a lot more. Boy Meets Girl will be a memoir of my struggle to figure out what it might mean to our romance if my husband became my wife, and how what I learned in the process might help others in relationships of all kinds.
So there you have it.
