The Woman I Was Not Born to Be: A Transsexual Journey

by

The Woman I Was Not Born to Be: A Transsexual Journey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Told with humor and flair, this is the autobiography of one transsexual's wild ride from boyhood as Alfred Brevard ("Buddy") Crenshaw in rural Tennessee to voluptuous female entertainer in Hollywood.

About the Author
