by Jackie Kay - £8.99  Picador (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781447289494 | ISBN 10: 1447289498

This is the story of Joss Moody, a female jazz trumpet player who disguises herself as a man, and leads a complete life in her male guise - even marrying a woman and fostering a child.
 
It's this child - Moody's son - who relates the her story after she has died, finally coming to terms with the fact that his 'father' led a secret life.
