Editorial Reviews

Review

“(Griggs') writing is complex, subtle and serious, but the language is never technical or over-academic, with the result that almost anyone could enjoy, and learn something from, this book, from the full-on academic to the just plain interested. And its clear and wide-ranging references to academic sources will guarantee its inclusion on undergraduate reading lists. [...] The book is a reminder that we all, expert and amateur alike, have more to learn. Griggs' perspicacious and nuanced insights on gender are relevant to everyone, male and female, not just to transsexuals and academics . . . Due to her personal experiences, she is uniquely placed to explore the tragedy of gender, as well as its comedy, as she has privileged insight into the different way the sexes are treated.” ―Costume

By T. Dreiling on April 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is simply one of the best books I have ever read about the transsexual experience. Griggs combines both scholarly research with her personal life story.

By A Customer on December 27, 2002
Format: Paperback
Despite being a male to female transsexual herself, Claudine Griggs seems to have done a one-sided research by collecting more information regarding female to male transsexuals. If you belong to the latter group, you might like this book.
