Kort biografi
Elliot Page uses he/him and they/them pronouns. Elliot identifies as non-binary and transgender.



I hope he got something out of writing it; I didn't get that much out of reading (listening to) it. I don't read a lot of celebrity memoirs, so I can't judge it against the genre. Page says/implies he's been good at acting because he's good at dissociating; sounds like he's getting better, and I'm really happy for him, but it doesn't make for the most insightful or connected writing.

I wonder if he's doing some weird LA Freudian group therapy thing, because bowel movements and poop come up a LOT. I too have an anxious stomach, but he really takes it to the next level.

Also, my recommendation stands: don't write about your transition until you've been out for a few years. Your cis friends and colleagues will make it sound like a good idea; they're wrong. Page actually did a good job not falling into the most obvious traps (he's really thoughtful about privilege), but I feel like in a few years he might actually have something original to say about transitioning while A-list??? On the other hand, do celebrity memoirs ever have anything new to say? I don't think that's their function....

Finished this in less than 24 hours. This is a book I needed 15 years ago to understand so much of what was going on in my own journey with gender and sexuality. The amount of courage to open up about these most vulnerable highlights from a life filled with so little hope. Whether you are a fan of his work, part of the lgbtq+ community, or trying to become a better ally - pick up this book.

He lays his journey down honestly and raw. A read that took me out of my comfort zone and I’m glad to have read it.

Le sujet ne manque pas d'intérêt: Page parle de sa jeunesse, de sa carrière, de ses expériences, mais c'est avant tout son cheminement identitaire qui est intéressant. De garçon manqué à femme à homme, il a vécu tout un processus long, douloureux, troublant mais enfin salvateur.
Je me demandais toujours pourquoi la transition sauvait "littéralement" la vie. J'ai compris que les troubles tels que l’anorexie, la scarification, les pensées de suicide sont de réels problèmes qui peuvent mener jusqu'à la mort et qu'un tel mal-être que la dysphorie est effectivement une question de vie ou de mort.
Quel dommage, alors que le livre soit mal écrit et que la traduction ne fait que l'empirer! Les épisodes que racontent Page sont décousus, hors chronologie, sans thématique particulière; difficile donc de se faire une véritable idée de son parcours. La traduction localisée à l'outrance efface tous les aspects canadiens et est souvent boiteuse. Ça m'a gâché le livre.
C'est une bonne ressource pour en apprendre davantage sur la transsexualité mais le livre est pénible à lire.
