Alice in Genderland: A Crossdresser Comes of Age

If I could have had that and a more chaste night out with Melissa, then we might never have stopped being girls on the town together. I don’t understand what drives transvestites except from what I have read and what I have been told when speaking with them.

Gene N Fowler rated it it was ok Sep 26, One can be genderlaand and self-actualize without being a selfish, cheating, narcissist.

Novic is self-involved and apparently has no qualms about—I say that because he never wrote about it, and he thoroughly shared so much about his life—how his relationships in secret, outside of his marriage with Melissa, would affect her and their children.

Focuses on all aspects good and bad, but never clearly makes a judgement of anyone or their reasons for being an ything but what they are. Like Alice in Wonderland, his curiosity led him to fall headlong down a rabbit hole, through desperate straits, mind-opening surprises, heart-rending changes, gritty sex, and boundless love.
