in this book, one man tries to burn to the ground liberal education with his hate and anger.
others try to live, love, and survive.
a moving and angst filled story that opens so many doors to a variety of discussions.
from an amazing author, another book you just should not pass up!
Most of us don't spend much time thinking what it would be like to have been born the opposite gender, or born with the feeling of being assigned one physical gender with the inner feeling of belonging to the opposite gender. Today's society has little room for the small minority of people with gender identity issues. Because they are in the minority does not make them insignificant and unimportant.
What the author accomplishes by telling her story allows her to demonstrate the universal truths that bind us together as a human race - despite our differences in beliefs, ethics, politics, etc. we all have the same basic needs and desires, and our differences pale in comparison to our similarities despite how things may seem at first glance. We fear what we do not understand. I now understand things I did not prior to reading this book. I will probably be forever changed, in a good way, for having read and understood this book and the point of view it portrays.
Ms Woulff's richly drawn characters and gripping, intertwined subplots both elucidate and subject the reader to a whole range of emotions--hatred, fear, sadness, contempt, but throughout-- and ultimately--love. One needn't be a member of the LGBT community to be inspired by this book. Indeed, only the most jaded among us would fail to see--and grow by--the valuable lessons it offers.
The battle between good and evil is centered around the main character in the book who is a transsexual person. Those who are closed-minded tend to be judgmental and hateful. Others struggle to change attitudes and perceptions.
Iolanthe Woulff knows how to weave intrigue throughout a plot that deals with homophobia and transphobia in a conservative culture.
I had to read the book in one sitting! A really good read!

In fact She's My Dad is my favourite book of the two. The plot is involved without losing momentum, the characters are well nuanced and the underlying social observation is dealt with tactfully and with genuine insight. Yet again, I couldn't think of anything less than five stars.
