Let the Dandelions Grow
"Let the Dandelions Grow: a Poetic Portrait of a Transsexual Journey and the Human Condition" is just what it claims to be -- a large volume of poetry by a woman who spent her first sixty-five years as a man. She is a professor and a therapist as well as a poet. Her poetry is not difficult, but it is always thoughtful, insightful, and a delight to read. Sometimes it is angry, but more often it is witty and amusing and droll. It will make you cry in places, but it will also make you laugh. It will help you understand what it is to be a transsexual, trapped in a body that seems to be of the wrong gender. But it will also help you understand what it is to be human.
