Writing Sex: Torrey Peters

October 9, 2022

WRITING SEX is a series of short interviews with contemporary writers who are breaking new ground in writing about sex and sexuality. Sometimes ribald but always smart, these writers push the limits of our ability to imagine what sex is, what it means, and what it could be.

Torrey Peters is the author of the novel Detransition, Baby, published by One World, which won the 2021 PEN/Hemingway award for debut fiction. It was also a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Awards, a finalist for the Brooklyn Public Library Award, and was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction. A collection of four novellas, titled Infect Your Friends and Loved Ones, will be published by Random House in 2023.
