My experience with this book was all over the map. It's a strange mix of genres: the frame narrative is a trans man academic who finds an undiscovered 18th century manuscript about a famous thief who was also a trans man. The majority of the story is the historical narrative with footnotes taking place in the academic's increasingly satirical / dystopian world. I was super into it at first but found my attention waning and feeling uncomfortable with the role women of colour played for white men and confused about how the portrayal of historical transness might intersect with intersexuality.

37.0% "The satire of academia in this book is gold. Although the fact that the American audiobook narrator is not very good at British accents is kinda distracting."
