Surpassing Certainty: What My Twenties Taught Me
by Janet Mock
Atria Books. 227 pages, $24.99
THERE ARE many reasons to read Janet Mock’s earlier memoir, Redefining Realness (2014), not least of which is that it serves as a prelude, if not a prerequisite, to reading her new book, Surpassing Certainty. The earlier book offered a unique look at becoming a transgender woman and eventually a transgender model in Hawaii.
