Oliver Radclyffe is part of the new wave of transgender writers unafraid to address the complex nuances of transition, examining the places where gender identity, sexual orientation, feminist allegiance, social class, and family history overlap. His work has appeared in The New York Times and Electric Literature. He currently lives on the Connecticut coast where he is raising his four children.

He has two books due for publication: Adult Human Male, a monograph, forthcoming from Unbound Edition Press in 2023, and Frighten the Horses, a memoir, forthcoming from Roxane Gay Books in 2024.

Praise for Adult Human Male

Oliver Radclyffe … has predicted a future in which gender is not just mutable, but trivial. I can’t wait to live in that world, and I love Oliver for forging the path.

Janet W. Hardy

Adult Human Male is an excoriating response to … the ‘hostile cis perspective.’ After [this book], we cannot be neutral. [Radclyffe] writes with deft prose and measured fury.

Alexander Cheves

… a moment of literary calm amid the wild seas of our current political and cultural landscape.
