About me:.. .. i'm an author and playwright and performance artist. i've written mostly postmodern gender theory, queer political rants, third wave feminist whatever and s/m porn when i've had time to do that. now, it seems i've written a self-help book for members of the radical left wing. it's called "hello, cruel world: 101 alternatives to suicide for teens, freaks, and other outlaws." and i'll have more up here about that sooner than later but for now, you can visit http://www.hellocruelworld.net fpr a sneak peek. it's taken me years to write this book, so that's pretty much what i'm about these days.
Bornstein…shares nearly 60 years of her own strategies and struggles to stay alive in order to make it a little less difficult for the rest of us. —San Francisco Bay Guardian, Mattilda, a.k.a. Matt Bernstein Sycamore
Ultimately, Bornstein is offering up an entirely new world-view for the living. From finding a new way to say hello to finding the love of your life, this is a hopeful, compassionate, kind, yet ass-kicking book… —Gothamist.com, Rachel Kramer Bussel
A don’t-hurt guide for anyone who’s been tempted to give in to despair. —Time Out New York
I realize Kate Bornstein is trying to save teenagers — the beautiful weirdos on whom the fate of our future rests—but if her book gets into the wrong hands, she might inadvertently save a whole lot of adults too. —Carol Queen, Founding director, Center for Sex & Culture
I’m absolutely crazy about Hello Cruel World. Kate’s wisdom, humor and non-judgmental approach to survival is brilliant. —Betty Dodson, PhD, Author of Sex For One
Give this book to someone you love, or to someone you're afraid of losing (even if it's yourself). Hello, Cruel World will do no less than save lives. —T Cooper, author of "Lipshitz Six, or Two Angry Blondes"
A sassy and smart how-to book for all those who want to love life, even when it betrays, disappoints, and otherwise acts unworthy of your heart. —Peggy Phelan, The Ann O'Day Maples Chair in the Arts and Professor of Drama and English, Stanford
