“Cory McCarthy has written a triumphant trans coming of age novel with depth, nuance, heart and humor.”—Ms. Magazine
“McCarthy deftly presents the humor and heartbreak of River’s journey, avoiding easyanswers and embracing nuance. Readers will root for River through the pain, anger, and swimmeets and be rewarded with a love story destined to make a splash.”—Booklist
“This is a book that will pull you through the cold honest water of the closet with laughter and love. McCarthy assembles pain, realization, romance, and joy into a living thing—a man-of-war everyone will be able to see themselves in. Man O’ War is the pressure of a deep dive, and then coming up for air. Astoundingly honest and compelling.”—Lev Rosen, acclaimed author of Camp
