Refuse, updated

ByElliott DeLine

Finalist for the LGBT 2011 LGBT Rainbow Awards “Refuse could meaningfully be compared to the work of Dennis Cooper (with far less violence), Brett Easton Ellis (with far fewer chemical substances), David Sedaris (with not as many belly laughs) and Leslie Feinberg (with a much less mournful air). Conversant with the queer coming-of-age narrative, the disaffected-youth novel and the transgender memoir...DeLine pushes back against the familiar, and safe, conventions of these sources to produce a captivating story... DeLine, not yet out of college, is a writer to watch.” -Out in Print Queer Book Reviews “Refuse is a stunning debut “novoir” about an over-observant young outsider with really great hair who is outside everything – including the transgender community – but keeps a great deal bottled up inside. Funny, cynical, tough, vulnerable, honest, deluded, sagacious, self-loving and self-loathing, Refuse is irresistible.” -Mark Simpson, author of Saint Morrissey
