One in Every Crowd by Ivan E. Coyote (Arsenal Pulp Press)

Queer storyteller Ivan E. Coyote has created a diverse and charming array of vignettes for anyone who has ever fought to find who they really are. The stories are both comedy and sincerity, and they embrace the life of not knowing how to define normal, where you fit, and who you look to for modeling when you are questioning your own desires. Coyote's narrative spans from a tomboy childhood to a big city life for the girl who grew up loving playing hockey in northern Canada. (ArsenalPulp.com, $15.95)
