Summary "A remarkable, deeply moving memoir of one man's gender transition amid a pivotal political moment in America"-- Provided by publisher.
For fifty years P. Carl lived as a girl and a queer woman, building a career, a life, and a loving marriage, yet still waiting to realize himself in full. Embarking on his gender transition, he takes us inside the complex shifts and questions that arise throughout-- the alternating moments of arrival and estrangement. He discusses how transitioning reconfigures both his own inner experience and his closest bonds-- subtly altered, often painfully and wordlessly-- in an era when transphobia and toxic masculinity are under fire even as they thrive in the highest halls of power. -- adapted from jacket
