really liked it

I found the premise of this book fascinating: a guy who deeply identifies with women, has a passion for feminist literature, yet is resolutely cisgender and has come out as a "heterosexual sissy." A perpetual outsider, Derek imagines he'll find a home for himself in women's studies; he ends up sparring with his professors because they don't want to touch radical feminist theory. You can't help feeling for and admiring this guy whose single-minded ambition seems to be to find a place where his ideas and passions will be met with if not enthusiasm then at least respect. Alas, inquiring minds like his are mostly not appreciated in the settings where he lands.
The book as a whole could have used a good editor but it moves along at a very quick pace and I found it hard to put down. The university scenes especially are nicely fleshed out and compulsively readable.
