Real Man Adventures

Examining the fraught territory of masculinity and gender identity from the rare perspective of a transgender man, novelist T Cooper charts both his own journey and that of his fellow identity pioneers, through frank and intimate confidences from his own life, as well as conversations with such experts as Kate Bornstein and the parents of transgender children.
