"Evocative, compelling, terrifying, sad, and ultimately triumphant. A classic coming of age narrative about a woman who seeks a sense of belonging that she doesn't find in her family or her body." -- Emily Rapp Black, author of Poster Child: A Memoir, The Still Point of the Changing World, and Sanctuary"Don't let the Gun title put you off, Jody's not a strident revolutionary - she's a thoughtful vulnerable one. This is as much of a young woman's 'coming of age' story during the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll 1960s as it is a (former) radical activist memoir. For far too long the story of 'The Movement' has only been told in men's voices - this woman's perspective is refreshing and important." -- Pat Thomas, author of Listen Whitey! The Sounds of Black Power 1965-75 and Did It! Jerry Rubin: An American Revolutionary
