„Bloom’s unwillingness to embrace simple formulations, her insistence on digging deeper, is her book’s strength.“ The New York Times
„Bloom brings together, in graceful, readable prose, a plethora of facts, ideas, arguments and personal responses to help us reconsider received ideas about gender … fascinating“ Publishers Weekly
A great many people like to imagine Nature as a sweet, simple voice: tulips in spring, leaves falling in autumn. Nature is more like Aretha Franklin: vast, magnificent, capricious, occasionally hilarious and infinitely varied.
What does it mean to be male or female? Is who we are determined by sex or gender? Novelist and psychotherapist Amy Bloom takes us on an intimate and humourous journey into the world of transsexuals, crossdressers and hermaphrodites, a group larger and more „normal“ than most of us would imagine, and meets people who defy society’s stereotypes, being both like and unlike everyone else.
Pulling apart the fibres of our assumptions, Bloom brilliantly stitches together a revised, contemporary view of happiness, human nature, identity, self, and above all – what’s normal.
