Overview

Winner, Publishing Triangle Award for Trans and Gender Variant Literature; American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book

 

What can we hope for at the end of the world? What can we trust in when community has broken our hearts? What would it mean to pursue justice without violence? How can we love in the absence of faith?

 

In a heartbreaking yet hopeful collection of personal essays and prose poems, blending the confessional, political, and literary, Kai Cheng Thom dives deep into the questions that haunt social movements today. With the author’s characteristic eloquence and honesty, I Hope We Choose Love proposes heartfelt solutions on the topics of violence, complicity, family, vengeance, and forgiveness. Taking its cues from contemporary thought leaders in the transformative justice movement such as adrienne maree brown and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, this provocative book is a call for nuance in a time of political polarization, for healing in a time of justice, and for love in an apocalypse.

This enlightened essay collection is both an invocation of and invitation to love - with intention - as a way to repair, rebuild and reimagine new worlds. I hope readers will choose to take up Kai Cheng Thom's fiery call to arms. –Vivek Shraya, author of I'm Afraid of Men and even this page is white

In this brave and skillfully written collection of essays, Kai Cheng Thom dares to be really honest – to write truths that go beyond easy orthodoxy to her and our own messy, complex, real stories. This is an essential text for everyone trying like hell to create something that will come after the end of the world. Read it, and prepare to have your mind challenged and opened. –Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, author of Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice
