Julie Clarke was born a boy in the 50s in central Scotland. From a very early age she knew she was different from other boys, but growing up in the 50s and 60s was not conducive to discussing feelings of gender difference and for many years Julie didn’t even know there was a medical term for her dilemma: she was transsexual. Sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, but always honest, becoming julie charts the author’s struggle to build a new life as a woman.
Julie Clarke writes from the heart. Brave and heart-rending, her story stands as a powerful testament to the strength it takes to become who you really are. – Emma Cowing, features editor, Scottish Daily Mail –
