CHOIR BOY owes, perhaps, more than a little to Augusten Burroughs’ Running With Scissors.
CHOIR BOY owes, perhaps, more than a little to Augusten Burroughs’ Running With Scissors. Each is the story of a smart, self-sufficient kid living in a whacked-out world with abusively neglectful parents, a loopy psychiatrist, and plenty of statutory sex. Both books have a tone of dry, black humor as well. Of course, Burroughs insists his work is non-fiction, while Charlie Anders’s is imaginary. And, having had the pleasure of meeting Charlie Anders several times in some most interesting venues, I can understand how it is she knows all about it. In a way, CHOIR BOY can be read as an overblown force-femme fantasy, but it is much more than that.

I don't want to talk a bunch of shit, because obviously Charlie Anders the person and activist is a friggin wonderful genius, so I'm just going to make one point: I know a lot of transsexual women. I may even know more transsexual women than most people.

Fellow choirboys, an adult transsexual prostitute, wackily harmful parents and a rainbow of urban nonconformists surround Berry's identity struggle. This mostly ignored subject needs high-quality prose; one would hope that Berry's story, though memorable, foreshadows new-and tighter-entries.
