Publishers Weekly: Ultra Queer Book Review

I'm excited to report that Publishers Weekly reviewed my book, Where's the Mother: Stories from a Transgender Dad.

And, the reviewer appreciated the ways that I draw attention to varying degrees of privilege, including my own. It's a rad, queer review!

From Publishers Weekly: "MacDonald’s debut memoir tells a tale noticeably absent from the plethora of parenting and breastfeeding books available: that of a transgender man in a gay marriage to a cisgender man who was himself adopted, both desperately trying to feed their biological child nothing but human milk... MacDonald owns his identity, using his elevated platform to call attention to issues faced by transwomen and transmen, people of color, and those living in poverty. Most importantly, his story of transitioning is frank, clever, and easy to process, providing plenty of parallels to his later struggles with nursing for curious cis readers... a refreshing and insightful narrative."

  1. This is a gorgeous place, and I won't soon forget it. Attended events at seattle venues sponsored by the company. The reception hour was held in one of the rooms next to the hall. I loved their buttery mashed sweet potato.

  2. This is a great blog, I really like this post. If you are a novice blogger and want to write well, I advise you train your writing skills. This is very useful and will never be over. Here you can try yourself as the author of the essay essays.io/, it brings a lot of money, the main thing that your level was at the height, they only work with experienced authors.
