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. This memoir is a rare pre-Women's Movement account of coming to terms with gender identity as Brevard writes frankly about the degree to which she organized her life around pleasing men, and how absurd it all seems to her now. 17 illustrations.
