Sexual Metamorphosis
An Anthology of Transsexual Memoirs
Jonathan Ames

In Sexual Metamorphosis, Ames presents the personal narrative of sixteen gender pioneers. Christine Jorgensen, the first celebrity transsexual, greeting thousands of well-wishers from the stage of Madison Square Garden. Caroline Cossey, former model and Bond girl, being outed in the tabloids. Novelist and English professor Jennifer Boylan discusses her impending transformation with her heartbroken spouse and supportive yet confused colleagues. The result is a fascinating and compulsively readable book, filled with anguish, introspection, and courage.

This book has been out for some time, so it’s not a new publication, but it’s a book worth pursing for its insight and breadth of coverage.
