Book Description: The provocative bestseller Sheâ€™s Not There is the winning, utterly surprising story of a person changing genders. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, Jennifer Finney Boylan explores the territory that lies between men and women, examines changing friendships, and rejoices in the redeeming power of family. Told in Boylanâ€™s fresh voice, Sheâ€™s Not There is about a person bearing and finally revealing a complex secret. Through her clear eyes, Sheâ€™s Not There provides a new window on the confounding process of accepting our true selves.â€śProbably no book Iâ€™ve read in recent years has made me so question my basic assumptions about both the centrality and the permeability of gender, and made me recognize myself in a situation Iâ€™ve never known and have never faced . . . The universality of the astonishingly uncommon: thatâ€™s the trick of Sheâ€™s Not There. And with laughs, too. What a good book.â€ť â€”Anna Quindlen, from the Introduction to the Book-of-the-Month-Club edition.
