What does it mean to be male or female? Is who we are determined by sex or gender?
Novelist and psychotherapist Amy Bloom takes us on an intimate and and humourous journey into the world of transsexuals, crossdressers and hermaphrodites, a group larger and more 'normal' than most of us would imagine, and meets people who defy society's stereotypes, being both like and unlike everyone else.
Pulling apart the fibres of our assumptions, Bloom brilliantly stitches together a revised, contemporary view of happiness, human nature, identity, self, and above all - what's 'normal'.
