It’s 1993 and Paul Polydoris tends bar at the only gay club in a university town thrumming with politics and partying. But Paul’s also got a secret: he’s a shapeshifter. He transforms his body and his gender at will in a search for belonging and love that travels across America, from Iowa City to San Francisco.

Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl is an exhilarating, razor-sharp, queer coming-of-age store whose hero/ine winds his way through a world gutted by loss in the wake of AIDS, pulsing with music, and opening into an array of intimate connections.
