How does the child -even as an adult- react when a parent changes gender? In this book Susan Faludi, feminist and theorist, reconnects with a father she barely knew when he emails her with news that he is now not Steven, but Stephanie. She travels to Hungary a number of times over succeeding years, re-establishing a relationship with this new person, and trying to make connections between the two halves of his life (something Stephanie did not try to do). It's a cerebral book, but rooted in the emotions. See my full review here:
