About the Book

A Year Without a Name

For as long as they can remember, Cyrus Grace Dunham felt like a visitor in their own body. Their life was a series of imitations --- lovable little girl daughter sister young gay woman --- until their profound sense of alienation became intolerable.
Beginning as Grace and ending as Cyrus, Dunham brings us inside the chrysalis of gender transition, asking us to bear witness to an uncertain and exhilarating process that troubles our most basic assumptions about who we are and how we are constituted. Written with disarming emotional intensity in a voice uniquely theirs, A YEAR WITHOUT A NAME is a potent, thrillingly unresolved meditation on queerness family and desire.
