Featuring disarming illustrations by Saul Freedan Lawson, Special Topics in Being a Human is a gentle, witty, and insightful book of practical advice for the modern age. It offers classic Dad advice and Jewish bubbe wisdom, all filtered through a queer lens, to help you navigate some of the complexities of life — from how to make big decisions, get someone’s new name and pronouns right as quickly as possible, gracefully navigate a breakup or make a good apology. With warmth and candor, Special Topics in Being a Human calls out social inequities and injustices in traditional advice-giving, validates your feelings, asks a lot of questions, and tries to help you be your best possible self with kindness, compassion, and humor.
