That incident occurred when I was only allowed to kick my heels up one night out a month, as opposed to the last several years, in which I go out once a week. Throughout the book, Novic refers to scientific papers and academic books in relation to transgenderism and related topics.
As long as they don’t force their lifestyle in my face and are honest courteous people otherwise, I feel it would benefit sociey to learn as much about these people as possible.
Alice in Genderland is the first ever memoir by a crossdresser who is not content to live behind closed doors. Written from a very human perspective and the everyday life of a transgendered person.

Five Questions With… Alice Novic
Katherine Caldwell rated it really liked it Apr 01, As an open and honest tale, it does include some very frank discussions of sexuality that some readers may be uncomfortable with. It was pinned under my side. But one night a week, Alice is a woman about town, shopping, dining, dancing, and dating a man for nearly a decade.
Why is this review inappropriate? Novic wrote this memoir because he wanted to honestly share his experience wlice crossdressing. Novic breaks down many walls with his honest and effective communication.

In fact, one of the elements of his story that rang most true for me is the series of rules he comes up with to try and apply a logical, intellectual structure to what is entirely an irrational, emotional need for expression. It is a manner in which, although fully confessing to his wife-to-be, this man comes to terms with himself and far from shutting himself away from life, learns how to embrace the seeming contradiction that is his life into one cohesive whole.
