A few years ago I went, once again, to the Tattered Cover, Denver’s premiere independent bookstore, looking for a book like this one. I didn’t find it. After looking everywhere I could imagine they might shelve such a thing, I approached the Reserve Desk to ask. I posed my question without really looking at the person standing behind the counter.
“I’m looking for a book for women who choose to remain married to a transsexual husband or who deliberately enter a relationship with a transsexual.”
“Oh, honey, there is no such book, and there needs to be.” Something in the timbre and pitch of the voice caused me to look up. I recognized the clerk. She was herself transsexual and had been around the transgendered community in Denver for years.
I laughed and said, “Hi, Penny. I didn’t know you worked here. I’ve never found a book anything like that. There are a lot of books for the wives of cross-dressers, both how to live with him and how to leave him, but this is a whole ‘nother animal,” I sighed.
