From the Publisher

Narrated by the author with two afterwords: one written and read by Deirdre Finney Boylan, and one written and read by Richard Russo

The provocative bestseller She's Not There is the winning, utterly surprising story of a person changing genders. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, Jennifer Finney Boylan explores the territory that lies between men and women, examines changing friendships, and rejoices in the redeeming power of family. Told in Boylan's fresh voice, She's Not There is about a person bearing and finally revealing a complex secret. Through her clear eyes, She's Not There provides a new window on the confounding process of accepting our true selves.

"Probably no book I've read in recent years has made me so question my basic assumptions about both the centrality and the permeability of gender, and made me recognize myself in a situation I've never known and have never faced . . . The universality of the astonishingly uncommon: that's the trick of She's Not There. And with laughs, too. What a good book." -Anna Quindlen, from the Introduction to the Book-of-the-Month-Club edition.

    Her Gym Is The First Of Its Kind To Cater To An Often-Excluded Clientele

    Some may think this Oakland, Calif., gym is a bit queer. And that’s just the way founder Nathalie Huerta intended it to be. The Queer Gym, formerly The Perfect Sidekick, is a gym that caters to the LGBTQ community and the only one of its kind. When Huerta, a personal trainer, rented a tiny place in Oakland in 2010, she never imagined it would become what it is today. “We are closing in on our max capacity of 175 members,” the Mexican-American entrepreneur from Anaheim, Calif., told A Plus. “We currently have 147 and expect to hit the 175 mark in the next 60 days,” Huerta continued. “Our goal i

    How Office Culture Can Crush Women’s Ambitions

    Researchers have long been looking for solutions to what could be called the ambition gap. That’s the nagging discrepancy which often shows up in polling, where women express less interest in becoming senior executives than their male counterparts. It’s a frustrating dilemma, and one without simple answers. Encouragingly, companies are starting to investigate the problem and what can be done about it. But at least part of the problem, it seems, is companies themselves. A new report from the consulting firm Boston Consulting Group investigates why women seem more reticent to compete for top job
