"Lester makes the most complex of subjects easy to digest, and I finished with more insight and knowledge than I ever expected."  Stylist

"Lester is a writer for our times - a moving, learned and essential voice at the razor edge of gender politics. Their work has been inspirational to me for many years. Lester writes with the compassionate authority of a person not just wise beyond their years, but beyond the age they were born into."  Laurie Penny
