A Queer and Pleasant Danger by Kate Bornstein

A Queer and Pleasant Danger

by Kate Bornstein

This is a hell of a life story. The front of the book describes it pretty well: "The true story of a nice Jewish boy who joins the Church of Scientology and leaves twelve years later to become the lovely lady she is today."

Or in Kate Bornstein's own words in the book: “I was born male and now I’ve got medical and government documents that say I’m female—but I don’t call myself a woman, and I know I’m not a man. . . .”

This is the well-told, grippingly true story of a life lived to the fullest. It's funny, honest, full of adventures—from captaining a ship to galvanizing a movement.
