Jill Soloway with Hannah Gadsby, Morgan Parker, and Nicole J. Georges
Jill Soloway is most known as the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning creator of Transparent and I Love Dick, as well as other film (Afternoon Delight) and television work. Jill Soloway has also been active as cofounder of 5050by2020, East Side Jews, and Sit n’ Spin, a spoken word series. Jill Soloway is about to be even better known as the author of She Wants It: Desire, Power, and Toppling the Patriarchy (Crown Archetype).
“Jill Soloway writes with passion, fierceness, and vulnerability. In She Wants It we read an amazing story of changing worlds—both the one around them, which is forever altered by their groundbreaking series, Transparent, as well as the one dwelling deep within their own unruly heart. She Wants It tells the story of a revolution, both cultural and personal. I often had to pause to laugh, or cry, or simply catch my breath in wonder. Provocative, generous, and inspiring.” —Jennifer Finney Boylan.
“Most writers hide in memoirs, sharing little real stories. With generous openhearted honesty, courage, and compassion, Soloway invites us to hear true stories. They share the difficult painful revelations, triumphs, and failures. Listening to them, readers laugh, cry, love, and most important, learn.” —bell hooks.
