An early version of Man Alive won the Mary Tanenbaum nonfiction award from the San Francisco Foundation and was a finalist for the 2012 Bakeless literary prize administered by Graywolf and Breadloaf.

After being mugged at gunpoint in Oakland, CA, the author started this memoir as a way to evaluate his life.

Far from just another sensationalistic transgender tell-all, Man Alive, brings a long-needed perspective of a very real and nuanced experience to audiences unlikely to read a book like it before now.

Thomas Page McBee is a "masculinity expert" for Vice Magazine and the managing editor at PolicyMic. He also writes a column "Self-Made Man" for The Rumpus.

His essays and reportage have also appeared in the New York Times,, Salon, and Buzzfeed, where he is a regular contributor on gender issues.

He has connections to notable writers, including Cheryl Strayed, through his work at The Rumpus.
