Book Review: kitten

by Olive Nuttall
Review by Ray

Hot, uncomfortable, challenging, hopeful (and did I mention hot?). I inhaled this short, intense novel about a trans woman who travels home to Hamilton to attend to a family crisis. Past trauma is explored with a casual nuance that I found unnerving and profoundly engaging. I will keep thinking about this book for weeks and months to come, and am already looking forward to a re-read. Be sure to follow it up with Pip Adam’s brilliant review for Readingroom here.
