A stunningly original memoir of a nice Jewish boy who joined the Church of Scientology and left twelve years later, ultimately transitioning to a woman and becoming famous as a gender outlaw

Kate Bornestein-gender theorist, performance artist, author-is set to change lives with her compelling memoir. Wickedly funny and disarmingly honest, this is Bornstein's most intimate book yet, encompassing her early childhood and adolescence, college at Brown, a life in the theater, three marriages and fatherhood, the Scientology hierarchy, transexual life, LGBTQ politcs, and life on the road as a sought-after speaker.
