She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders ($10, Broadway)
Anna Quindlen probably said it best when she said, “Probably no book I’ve read in recent years has made me so question my basic assumptions about both the centrality and the permeability of gender, and made me recognize myself in a situation I’ve never known and have never faced." Jennifer Finney Boylan's She's Not There is probably one of the best trans memoirs because it's funny, moving, annoying, and revealing and at it's heart a story that's so universally about acceptance it's no surprise it became a best-seller.
