Personal Growth • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Writer, healer, and trans activist Kai Cheng Thom gives a moving performance of this book of letters about healing, forgiveness, community care, and more. She infuses her reading of each letter with internal rhythm and rising momentum, her voice speeding up and slowing down, building in intensity and then quieting, like waves rolling toward a shoreline. The letters are addressed to old friends, ex-lovers, monsters, transphobes, old versions of herself, and many others. Thom narrates some in a voice that crackles with rage and power, and others in a softer, quieter tone, reflecting the range of emotions they cover. Her musical narration emphasizes the poetry of each letter. This is a short but powerful book about living--even thriving--in a broken world.
