Real Man Adventures

book cover: Real Man Adventures

The novelist T. Cooper wrote a letter to his parents telling them he "wasn't their daughter anymore". 

In his new book Real Man Adventures Cooper captures the elusive experience of what it means to be a man, more specifically, a man who was assigned a female body at birth. 

He veers toward the uncomfortable truths and anxieties that come from inhabiting a trans body. 

This exploration of the pleasures and paradoxes of masculinity is blunt, pointed and hilarious.

Don't expect a smooth A to B transgender story but do expect to laugh heartedly and be amazed at his triumphant mastery and analysis of the expectations of the male role in society.
