Two stories woven and unraveled together: a young transgender student named Quinn helps his girlfriend escape from a violent home, while almost one hundred years prior, T. S. Eliot's life is given a fictional retelling. Discovering for himself how abuse survivors can mirror their abusers' behavior, Quinn finds himself mired in the continuing cycle over the course of two and a half years. A speculative romantic awakening for Eliot in Paris is derailed into his historically miserable first marriage. As four figures struggle with sexuality, destructive incompatibility, and the uncertain territory of trans-inclusive gender politics, the question becomes whether Quinn is trapped not only in one relationship, but also in a biography that is not his own... and a biography he himself has written.

Originally released in 2013, Tiresias became a finalist for the Transgender Fiction category at the Lambda Literary Awards. It has now been rereleased by the author in a new edition.
