"In this candid and thoughtful memoir, Shenher shares the story of his gender journey, from childhood gender dysphoria to teenage sexual experimentation to early-adult denial of his identity-and finally the acceptance that he is trans, culminating in gender reassignment surgery in his fifties. Along the way, he details his childhood in booming Calgary, his struggles with alcohol, and his eventual move to Vancouver, where he became the first detective assigned to the case of serial killer Robert Pickton (the subject of his critically acclaimed book That Lonely Section of Hell). With warmth and openness, This One Looks Like A Boy takes us through one of the most important decisions Shenher will ever make, as he comes into his own and finally discovers acceptance and relief."-- Provided by publisher.

A family story of growing up in Calgary in the 1970's, knowing there's something "wrong" with you. Even though he knew what was wrong, it took much of his life for Lorimer to gather the courage to get to the root of the issue. A courageous memoir, a loving tribute. Highly recommended.

This is a very well written and interesting book. The author should be commended for revealing personal challenges which assist readers to understand and appreciate people born with immense challenges. I admire and respect what the author has accomplished in life in spite of dealing with such personal issues.
