About the Author
Tom Léger and Riley MacLeod have been writing together and fostering space for transgender artists for over 10 years. Their plays have been seen at HERE Arts Center, WOW Cafe Theater, Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, and included 9 sold-out episodes of their serial comedy Butch McCloud: Your Friendly Neighborhood Lesbian Superhero which delighted audiences in New York for more than a year. Léger and MacLeod wrote the screenplay for the celebrated short film F. Scott Fitzgerald Slept Here (2007, dir. Jules Rosskam) which EMRO noted was "surprisingly blunt and humorous" and also "quite amazing". The two also co-produced STAGES, the first international transgender theater festival, in New York City in 2003. THE COLLECTION is their first book project.

Some stories begin with these good ideas or a story that will leave you thinking, and then they just stop (e.g. the superhero story). Other stories aren't really stories, but thoughts from the fictional characters.
I'm currently writing a script about a Eurasian/Hapa man who goes through gender reassignment so this book was right up my alley. The aforementioned story in "The Collection" about the Asian woman who underwent surgery was an inspiration for my own project and happened to be one of my favorites from this book.
I may return to read that particular story again. Unfortunately, in my own opinion, there could have been stronger stories.
