Published in 1993, this brave, original novel is considered to be the finest account ever written of the complexities of a transgendered existence. Woman or man? That's the question that rages like a storm around Jess Goldberg, clouding her life and her identity. Growing up differently gendered in a blue--collar town in the 1950's, coming out as a butch in the bars and factories of the prefeminist '60s, deciding to pass as a man in order to survive when she is left without work or a community in the early '70s. This powerful, provocative and deeply moving novel sees Jess coming full circle, she learns to accept the complexities of being a transgendered person in a world demanding simple explanations: a he-she emerging whole, weathering the turbulence. Leslie Feinberg is also the author of Trans Liberation, Trans Gender Warriors and Transgender Liberation, and is a noted activist and speaker on transgender issues.

Leslie Feinberg was born in Kansas City, Missouri on September 1, 1949. At the age of 14, she began supporting herself by working in the display sign shop of a local department store. She eventually stopped attending high school, though she officially received her diploma. She was a pioneer in transgender and lesbian issues, workers' rights, and intersectionality. She was a journalist for the Workers World newspaper since 1974, was the editor of the Political Prisoners page of Workers World newspaper for 15 years, and became a managing editor in 1995. She wrote several books during her lifetime including Stone Butch Blues, Transgender Warriors: Making History, Trans Liberation: Beyond Pink or Blue, Drag King Dreams, and Rainbow Solidarity in Defense of Cuba. She received numerous awards including the Lambda Literary Award and the American Library Association Gay and Lesbian Book Award.
