A thoughtful challenge to gender ideology that continually asks difficult questions about identity, orientation, and desire. Bornstein cleverly incorporates cultural criticism, dramatic writing, and autobiography to make her point that gender which she distinguishes from sex is a cultural rather than a natural phenomenon.

Confronting transgenderism and transgendered people is not easy for many individuals, but Bornstein does it in a way that sparks debate without putting her audience on the defensive. Seeing queer theater as a place in which gender ambiguity and fluidity can and should be explored, she includes in the book her play, Hidden: A Gender. Bornstein's witty style, personal approach, and frankness open doors to questioning gender assumptions and boundaries.

Occasionally wonky but overall a good case for how the dismal science can make the world less—well, dismal. Economics can be put to use in figuring out these big-issue questions.

Data can be adduced, for example, to answer the question of whether immigration tends to suppress wages. Not an easy read but an essential one. Title notwithstanding, this latest from the National Book Award—winning author is no guidebook to getting woke.
