COMPETITION: #julietatplaces - Win prizes including an advanced galley copy of Trans by Juliet Jacques. Read it first!


"I believe that there are as many gender identities as there are people; all unique, all constantly being explored in conscious and unconscious ways."

Trans is a moving memoir and insightful examination of transgender politics, telling the story of acclaimed journalist Juliet Jacques's story to the present day, including her sex reassignment surgery that she chronicled with unflinching honesty in
'A transgender journey', her serialised Guardian column.

To celebrate the forthcoming publication of Trans: A Memoir by Juliet Jacques in September, we are running a summer competition to give the chance for five lucky people to win:

- Advanced galley copy of Trans, waaaaay ahead of publication in September! Read it first!
- A copy of Melissa Gira Grant's Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex.
- A glossy poster with a diagram from Shulamith Firestone's Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution.
One Verso tote bag with a brand-new #demandthefuture design!

IF YOU WANT TO WIN: regram/repost the image above to your Instagram profile by Friday 7th August 5pm [GMT], tagging @versobooks and using the hashtag #JulietatPlaces. Winners will be contacted soon after.
