just loved the honesty and courage to be so honest. I believe a must read when interested in understanding people and going beyond superficiality and judgement.

Framed as a memoir (indeed, it's subtitled as such) this book could just as easily be shelved in the gender studies section. Here, Smith is painfully honest about his compulsions and addictions, as well as his family dysfunctions - but more is going on for the reader than cathartic voyeurism. His sexual explorations and exploits, his gender-bending clothing choices, all are served up in such a way as to make the reader think about sexual identity, both in the orientation and general senses. In addition, the book ends with a rather beautiful illustration of therapeutic reframing, which, as a conclusion, really works.
