“At many times in my life it has seemed unbearable to find myself in front of a camera,” wrote Elliot Page, commenting on the image that accompanies his first book. “But making this cover with Catherine Opie was a joy-filled experience that I will never forget.”

The book (which in Italy will be published by Mondadori and which can already be pre-ordered on the site ElliotPageBook. com) promises to tell the whole truth about the life and experiences of the Oscar-nominated actor for the film Juno in 2008 and publicly declared himself transgender in 2020. A book that will contain many details, behind the scenes and answers to «intimate questions about sex, love, trauma and Hollywood», as stated on the presentation website. «Pageboy it is the story of a life pushed to the brink. But more importantly, this beautifully told journey of what it means to stray from the expectations of others is an ode to becoming who we truly are with rebellion, strength and joy».

A book which, in these terms, could perhaps be useful to other people who are facing moments of transition or difficulty in recognizing and finding their gender identity, perhaps at a young age, as happened to Page. “Trans people are facing increasing attacks, from physical violence to health care bans, and our humanity is regularly questioned in the media,” Page writes on social media about her. «The act of writing, reading and sharing the multitude of our experiences is an important step in resisting those who wish to silence and harm us».

“Books have helped me, even saved me, so I hope this can help someone feel less alone, feel seen, no matter who they are or what path they’re on,” concludes Page.
