Read full description of the books:
This book is totally problematic...as Judith Halberstam discusses in "In a Queer Time and Place". Tipton's life as a jazz musician is interesting and colorful. Middlebrook makes a choice to use both male and female pronouns and flips back and forth between the pronouns and birth name and chosen name like she's writing two characters. She also tends to argue that Tipton lived as man because it was easier to be a jazz musician that way. Middlebrook cannot let gender be complicated, even though she attempts to tell a complicated story When you read this, read it with critical eyes. A prime example of non-trans folks writing about trans folks.

Born in Pocatello, Idaho, she graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Washington in 1961 and earned her Ph.D. from Yale in 1968.
