Real Man AdventuresBook - 2012
A few years ago, the novelist T Cooper wrote his parents a letter telling them he "wasn't their daughter anymore." And that was the "good news." This book is Cooper's brash, wildly inventive, and often comic exploration of the paradoxes and pleasures of masculinity. He takes us through his transition into identifying as male, and how he went on to marry his wife and become an adoring stepfather of two children. Alternately bemused and exasperated when he feels compelled to explain all this, Cooper never loses his sense of humor.
