Moving, witty, and wise, S. Bear Bergman is an acclaimed writer and lecturer who travels regularly across North America to speak on trans issues.

In his third essay collection, Bear tackles the concept of the "modern family" as one of two trans parents of a young son; in Bear's extended family 'orchard', drag sisters, leather mentors, sperm-donor parents and other relations provide more branches of love and support than a mere family tree.

Blood, Marriage, Wine & Glitter is a thought-provoking collection that redefines the notion of what family is and can be.

"S. Bear Bergman is a first-rate storyteller, and this is his finest book to date. This heartwarming book is the first of its kind: a father/son love story in a family with one incredible kid and two queer, polyamorous, trans dads. Chapter by chapter, Bergman answered any question I had (and many questions I'd never considered) about the sociology of the ever-present radical normalcy in postmodern nuclear family life, and the tragicomedy of chosen family, deep in the heart of LGBT queerdom. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and gasp out loud. I sure did."
Kate Bornstein

"S. Bear Bergman writes tenderly and thoughtfully about the many many ways family creates us -- and breaks us -- for which we have few words. Yes, in some ways I love this book just because there are ways in which it's my own personal family album. But I love it even more for the ways in which it is yours, and everyone's."
Hanne Blank

"A memoir that confronts all sorts of difficult ideas about family and love, exploding preconceived notions and embarking on redefinitions."
National Post

"I have read so many books, but none so much as Blood, Marriage, Wine & Glitter have made me feel less alone."

"Bergman has crafted a well-wrought book of essays on parenting, non-traditional families, healing from old wounds, and intimacy that very nearly brought me to tears on several occasions ... The book rings true and clear in a modern queer world."
