With the nuanced and finely-honed timing of a gifted storyteller, Ivan Coyote grapples with complex and intensely personal issues such as gender identity, family, class, social justice, and queer liberation—always with a generous heart and a quick wit.

Ivan’s stories remind us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world.
