The Marrow's Telling: Words in Motion
Author: Eli Clare
Publisher: Homofactus Press, L.L.C.
ISBN: 978-0978597313
Format: Paperback 
Publication Date: August 15, 2007
Pages: 128

Eli Clare's poetry and prose rushed through my heart and soul with the same intensity as the mighty Oregon rivers which feature so prominently in his work. "The Marrow's Telling: Words in Motion" is storytelling in its finest form. This book challenges readers to look beyond initial assumptions and expectations in order to intimately explore the intersections of race, ability, gender, and sexuality. Politically charged, this work forges an important trail through body memories linked to childhood sexual abuse, ritual abuse, gender transformation, the act of sex, and body acceptance. Through tantalizing poetry "The Marrow's Telling" challenges us as readers to look more closely at the geography of our own lives.

Trans People in Love is a illuminating resource for members of the trans community and their partners and families; gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, and intersex people; sexologists; sex therapists; counselors; psychologists; psychotherapists; social workers; psychiatrists; medical doctors; educators; students; and couples and family therapists.

Trans People in Love provides a forum for the experience of being in love and in relationships with significant others for members of the trans community. This honest and respectful volume tells clinicians, scholars, and trans people themselves of the beauty and complexity that trans identity brings to a romantic relationship, what skills and mindsets are needed to forge positive relationships, and demonstrates the reality that trans people in all stages of transition can create stable and loving relationships that are both physically and emotionally fulfilling.

This important book features a wide range of relationships from monogamous heterosexuality and queer partnerships to lesbian vampire polyamory and BDSM  from around the globe, and reveals the diverse experiences of people in different cultures. These real-life love stories are widely varied, sometimes happy, at times tragic, many times erotic, but always honest. This book transcends gender issues and stands as a testament to the true power of love.

Psychology as a discipline has been criticised for perpetuating sexism, reproducing gender inequality, and neglecting marginalised perspectives. Internationally, an increasing attempt is being made to provide a critical gender analysis of the discipline and practice, and to theorise the contribution that psychology may make to addressing such issues. Making an important contribution to this critique and written by a team of experienced authors, The Gender of Psychology addresses the diversity of psychological knowledge and practice through the lens of gender. This text will stimulate critical and applied thinking, and prove indispensable to students in the social sciences, particularly those in the disciplines of Gender, women's studies and psychology.
