Toby shortlisted for 2023 Fitzcarraldo Editions/Mahler & LeWitt Studios Essay Prize

May 2023

We are pleased to announce that Toby’s book proposal, Embryos Denied Mitosis, has been shortlisted for the Fitzcarraldo Editions/Mahler & LeWitt Studios Essay Prize.

Embryos Denied Mitosis fuses memoir and autoethnographic analysis in an examination of immigration and transitioning. Spanning personal and familial experiences of gender dysphoria, the Malayan Emergency, the UK immigration system, tier 1 exceptional talent visas, the British colonial penal code and historical gender plurality in South East Asia, the essay unpicks the legitimacy of identities assigned at birth and their entanglement in the history of colonisation and racialisation.
