Fairest by Meredith Talusan Download Torrent
A unique and beautifully written memoir of a Filipino boy with albinism whose story stretches from an immigrant youth to Harvard to a gender transition and emphasizes the illusions of race, disability and gender
Fairest is a memoir about an earlier boy with albinism, a “son of the sun” from a rural Filipino town, who would grow up to be a woman in America. With the tension of parental neglect and the elusive promise of citizenship, Talusan found comfort in the youth of his devoted grandmother, a fundamental strength to be treated by others with special preference or public curiosity. As an immigrant to the United States, Talusan was considered white. An academic scholarship to Harvard provides access to elite privileged circles, but Talusan had to navigate the complex spheres of race, class, sexuality, and his place in the gay community. She emerged as an artist and activist who questioned gender boundaries. Realizing that she did not want to limit herself to a prescribed role as a man, Talusan switched to becoming a woman, despite the risk of losing a man she so loved. During his journey, Talusan shares striking and powerful episodes of desire and love that will remind readers of works such as Call Me By Your Name and Giovanni’s Room. Their evocative reflection will change our own perception of the love, identity, gender and justice of life.
