Publisher Description

From acclaimed author Jeanne Thornton, an epic, singular look at fandom, creativity, longing, and trans identity

Gala, a young trans woman, works at a hostel in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. She is obsessed with the Get Happies, the quintessential 1960s Californian band, helmed by its resident genius, B—-. Why did the band stop making music? Why did they never release their rumored album, Summer Fun?

Gala writes letters to B—- that shed light not only on the Get Happies, but paint an extraordinary portrait of Gala. The parallel narratives of B—- and Gala form a dialogue bout creation—of music, identity, self, culture, and counterculture.

Summer Fun is a brilliant and magical work of trans literature that marks Thornton as one of our most exciting and original novelists.

“Intensity mounts as Gala’s and B—’s experiences of gender and displacement overlap, and author Jeanne Thornton's narration keeps pace… A haunting and memorable audiobook. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
