Printing Details

Paperback, early printing. 17.5 × 11cm, 224pp.

'I want what I want... not what other people think I ought to want' Roy Clark insists to all those who attempt to help him: to the psychiatrist at the mental hospital in which he briefly finds himself; to his baffled but affectionate sister, whose clothes he has stolen; to his father, who is appalled that he has produced such a son.

For Roy Clark wants to be Wendy Ross. When a small legacy enables him—not to have the operation on which he has set his heart—but at least to dress and live his life as a woman, he feels brilliantly alive for the first time. But then he meets a man called Frank and, realising he can't live without love, the stage is set for tragedy.


A good reading copy. There is light wear to the covers and a few spots of foxing to the title page but the book is in good readable condition.
