With this volume, the author, a psychologist who has worked with over 500 gender variant clients over the last quarter century, gathers together the work of brain development scientist, gender specialist and her own personal clinical experience to add to the growing body of knowledge regarding transsexualism. While most books stop at genital reassignment surgery this book takes us through transition to 30 years beyond, revealing the realities of what it is like to live one’s life as a transsexual in a cisgendered world. With surgery life takes a turn wherein the individual is now permanently consigned to a parallel universe: not male, not female but a biological and sociological combination of both. It is a world where the ordinary becomes absurd and the absurd becomes ordinary. Transsexualism is the existential dilemma writ large.
