Exeter's Book/Film Group is returning for LGBT+ History month with Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) and Grace Lavery’s Please Miss. Read the book, watch the film, and join us for a discussion in the bar afterwards!

Raised a boy in East Berlin, Hedwig undergoes a traumatic personal transformation in order to emigrate to the U.S., where she reinvents herself as an “internationally ignored” but divinely talented rock diva. Based on the trailblazing musical from writer–director–star John Cameron Mitchell and composer lyricist Stephen Trask , Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells Hedwig’s life through her music, an eclectic assortment of original punk anthems and power ballads a tribute to the transcendent power of rock and roll.

Pair Hedwig with Please Miss from local independent bookshop Bookbag. A funny, warm, and painful memoir of gender transition and recovery from addiction, a dance across genres, Please Miss is unlike anything you’ve read before. As Grace fumbles toward a new identity, she tries on dozens of different voices, creating a coat of many colours. The result is dazzling and unforgettable. How could her story be straightforward when she is anything but?
