Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE.---------------CONUNDRUM: FROM JAMES TO JAN by Jan Morris. It is now public knowledge that James Morris, the author of 'The World of Venice', 'The Great Port', 'Pax Britannica', Heaven's Command' many other books, has undergone a sex change and is now Miss Jan Morris. This is a most extraordinary example of the phenomenon known as transsexualism---the lifelong conviction that one has been born into the wrong sex, and the struggle to escape from it. A singularly articulate and sensitive observer describes an experience made possible only recently through hormone treatments: the gradual sex change leading over a number of years to the final operation. During this period of transition, Morris became acutely conscious of the specific qualities distinguishing the masculine and feminine structure. The account of the subtle changes experienced psychologically as well as physiologically by a person who has lived as both a man and a woman is uniquely revealing. Winner of the Heinemann Award for literature in England, and the Polk Memorial Award for Journalism here, James Morris was a celebrated foreign correspondent before moving on to authorship, and was happily married and the father of four children. As Jan Morris, she maintains that family bond in a condition of what she calls "passionate friendship," but has in almost all respects become a new person. Nobody could be better qualified to discuss the tangled meanings of transsexualism. In Conundrum, she movingly evokes the indefinable, inexorable and for most of us, unimaginable force of the instinct that led her, through many years of torment, to the surgeon's clinic in Casablanca and an ambiguous but joyful fulfillment. This is the hardcover stated HBJ BCE from 1974. Other than a 1/2-inch tear on the back of the dj, both the dj and the book are in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
