Elliott Bay Book Company says
Originally from Arkansas, but now living in Sofia, Bulgaria - and teaching English literature and LGBTQ equality there - Garrard Conley is here to discuss his beautiful, very timely autobiography, Boy Erased: A Memoir (Riverhead) in conversation with Shelf Awareness' Dave Wheeler.

“This brave and bracing memoir is an urgent reminder that America remains a place where queer people have to fight for their lives. It’s also a generous portrait of a family in which the myths of prejudice give way before the reality of love. Equal parts sympathy and rage, Boy Erased is a necessary, beautiful book.” —Garth Greenwell.

“An essential document of the early 21st Century. Conley bears witness to something history will eventually condemn as too horrible to have happened, but he also takes the pain of “ex-gay therapy” and makes of it not just a record but a wonder.” —Alexander Chee.
