Title: ACE: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex
Author: Angela Chen
Publisher: Beacon Press
Release Date: September 15, 2020
Accessible and eloquently written, Ace sensitively and accurately spotlights an interconnected series of outsider experiences. Few asexual-spectrum narratives so authentically and diversely capture the truths, the quirks, the tragedies, and the triumphs of our lives without alienating non-ace readers or appealing only to one subset of the ace population. Ace creates an inclusive tapestry of validating and eye-opening narratives that will give some readers an experience they may have never had before: seeing our “anomalous” perspectives and emotions given the sensitive examination and validation we’ve always been denied.
