You Only Live Twice: Sex Death and Transition


By Chase Joynt & Mike Hoolboom

What if it's not true that you only live once?

In the genre-transcending book, You Only Live Twice,  trans writer and media artist Chase Joynt and HIV-positive movie artist Mike Hoolboom come together over the films of Chris Marker to exchange transition tales, confessional missives that map out the peculiarities of occupying what they call "second lives": Chase's transition from female to male and Mike's near-death from AIDS.

Weaving cultural theory with memoir and media analysis, YOLT asks intimate questions about what it might mean to find love and hope through conversation across generations.
