Detransition, Baby, Torrey Peters’s Women’s Prize-longlisted debut novel, remakes a classic comedy of manners for the 21st century. When trans woman Reese is approached by her ex-partner Ames (who has detransitioned) with a tantalising chance at motherhood, they find themselves building a portrait of a family with almost no blueprint. This novel reaches across a potentially rocky social situation with humour, warmth and a celebration of family. Chaired by Harry Josephine Giles.
