    The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried by Shaun David Hutchinson, two friends who had a falling out seemingly lose the chance to reconcile when one of them dies unexpectedly, but then the dead friend wakes up and the two are left to figure out why she's undead. An entertaining and heartfelt examination of relationships and how they can fail, with a zombie twist.

    Please let us know if there's a character that remotely resembles the one Mickey Rooney played in the movie.

    Mr. Yunioshi is in the book, but he isn’t a racist caricature.

    Just finished Almost Perfect, yet another story about a trans person's life, in which the character has transitioned in her teens and doesn't remotely represent most trans people that I've ever met. Nonetheless, it was in itself a decent read

    Latest Kindle books: Today it's the short poem collection 35 Sonnets (1918) by Fernando Pessoa and The Most Dangerous Game (1924) by Richard Connell (the last time I read this story was 40 years freshman year in high school). Tomorrow it's another short story - Among the Pathans (1891) by William Murray Goodwin - and then the much longer The Gates of Chance (1904) by Van Tassel Sutphen.

    Haven't read it and almost certainly never will but I'm curious as to why she's different. Just wild speculation on my part having not read it but one of the biggest difficulties most trans women I've met have is that because they transitioned later in life they aren't even remotely passable as women when you look at them. Many also didn't get much support. One I know that I worked with lost her entire family as her wife and kids all rejected her when she transitioned in her 40's. Whereas a teen who transitions probably has a strong family support system, else they wouldn't be transitioning as a teen, and if they are fortunate enough to get hormone blockers as a teen are far more likely to be 100% passable. The one trans female I sort of know (I don't actually know her so much as I know her parents) who transitioned as a teen is completely passable from looks to voice and no one would ever guess if she didn't tell you. Whereas as I said the one I used to work with just looks like a big burly man in a dress as she can't change the fact she's 6'2, has a man's brow and build, and very deep voice.
