RaveThe New York Times Book Review\"... funny and wise ... While the [story line focussing on the TV show \'Transparent\'] is fascinating and fun, it’s Soloway’s deeply considered and honestly depicted quest for an authentic self that gives this memoir its depth ... Collectively these voices shape Soloway’s awakening as an artist and as a person, but it’s the book’s interpretation of their work that speaks so urgently to our cultural moment. She Wants It dives deep into the meaning of female consent... and the cultural costs of men silencing women in order to protect other men in power.\
iO Tillett Wright
MixedThe New York Times Book ReviewThe emotional heart of the book lives within this tension — between taking care of his controlling and needy mother and taking care of himself. In this struggle, Tillett Wright is cleareyed but compassionate ... Though passionately felt and described, his struggles can feel overdetailed; they’d benefit from the insights of an older, wiser narrator. To make reference to Vivian Gornick, it’s too much situation, not enough story ... While he was living his life, history was also happening, and the inclusion of that history could enlarge his memoir. Nevertheless, it’s hard not to root for Tillett Wright when he finally comes into his own.
