Author of My Desert Odyssey and Odyssey Continues explores her lifelong issue of gender ambivalence: not a 100% woman, she’s longed to be a man. She (He?) shares her journey through enforced femininity in Japan, a voluntary spokesperson for white feminism in the West, to half-manhood that blossomed in Algeria. Since the arrival of her son she’s a neuter, with a number of mistaken identities.
This printed edition highlights her Ramadan experience in Algeria. She arrives for soul-searching in solitude; instead she talks breastfeeding to polygamy, waves down lorries en route and dances high into heaven, laughs and loves, as part of a team of delightful guys. If only it lasted.
Written entirely in the subconscious, a little gem full of insights.
