'A breath of fresh air . . .

There's no memoir like it' Independent' Travis Alabanza writes with such generosity and ease even the most provocative suggestions start to seem obvious . . .

Profound and funny' SHON FAYE 'Will challenge, empower and move your soul' Glamour'Lucid and glorious' YRSA DALEY-WARD'A gloriously specific, funny and smart body of work' CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS__'When you are someone that falls outside of categories in so many ways, a lot of things are said to you. And I have had a lot of things said to me.'In None of the Above, Travis Alabanza examines seven phrases people have directed at them about their gender identity. These phrases have stayed with them over the years.

Some are deceptively innocuous, some deliberately loaded or offensive, some celebratory; sentences that have impacted them for better and for worse; sentences that speak to the broader issues raised by a world that insists that gender must be a binary. Through these seven phrases, which include some of their most transformative experiences as a Black, mixed race, non binary person, Travis Alabanza turns a mirror back on society, giving us reason to question the very framework in which we live and the ways we treat each other.
