Critically acclaimed author of We Are the Ants described as having “hints of Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five” School Library Journal opens up about what led to an attempted suicide in his teens and his path back from the experience“I wasn’t depressed because I was gay I was depressed and gay”Shaun David Hutchinson was nineteen Confused Struggling to find the vocabulary D adults might find that they weren t aren t alone that life is worth living even if it sucks like hell sometimes Shaun talking about his depression and his struggle will lend hope to many readers by making them feel seen and understood I sure didThere s another uote that resonated with me like the one above Shaun just manages to put something into words that I have always know and felt but was never able to describe But like I said before sometimes coming out is not about us It s not fair that we have to carry the It s not fair that we have to carry the burden of sharing our secret and making sure the person we re coming out to is okay but we make concessions for the people we care aboutAnd with that all I have left to say isFind of my books on Instagram it feels utterly ridiculous to rate a memoir but still i m just really grateful to shaun for being brave enough to share his story with us we need it lgbt outh growing up figuring thems If The Proposal you like me mainly read fictionou might have read Prey your fair share of LGBT books but won t have read much about the ueer people who actually wrote those books And of course fiction has huge value in capturing human experience But reading about someone s actual reality is a different kind of experienceI don t read memoirs a lot but I read a few of Shaun David Hutchinson s books recently and really loved those so when I saw he had a memoir coming out I knew I had to read it And I m very glad I did Because his memoir shows a very different type of representation A honest less polished type At times this book felt almost invasive to read because of how brutally honest it was It must have taken a lot of courage to write a book like this and then publish it and allow others to read and inevitably judge it andou I can only applaud the author for thatPeople are ultimately flawed and growing up is not all rainbows and unicorns in general and even less so if Addicted to Womanhood Book One you struggle with in this caseour sexuality and mental health And Hutchinson really didn t shy away from that Instead he embraced it and I thought it was so powerful how he talked about his own flawed views as a teen and the mistakes he s made along the wayAt the same time this book is so well written and profound Hutchinson is such a skilled writer and the writing style really adds to this book s impactSomething I really appreciated is how explicit content warnings are added to the book one at the start and one somewhere in the middle to alert the reader to a discussion of attempted suicide In the second content warning the reader is even referred to a page number to indicate where it s safe to continue reading again To be honest adding content warnings should be standard in publishing but the reality is that it s not and it was so well done here I sincerely hope other authorspublishers pick up on this exampleCWs attempted suicide hospital internalized homophobia homophobic slurs self harm bullying Shaun David Hutchinson is one of my favorite YA authors His books particularly We Are the Ants and At the Edge of the Universe are full of emotion pain love and ultimately hope I ve always wondered how a writer can plumb such difficult emotional depths and after reading Hutchinson s new memoir Brave Face I understand that he has traveled those depths and only now has the perspective to reflect upon themThe teenage Batman: Arkham Asylum - A Serious House on Serious Earth years are difficult for many to navigate emotionally When Hutchinson realized after a number ofears of dating various female classmates that he was *gay he didn t know how to handle it His views and what he believed were society s *he didn t know how to handle it His views and what he believed were society s of gay people were the stereotypically flamboyant and fussy characters he saw in movies and on television and he worried that if he acknowledged his sexuality he d doom himself to a life of tawdry sex and drugs and ultimately death from AIDSAs if this self loathin.
