Orlando’s Sleep

Orlandos sleepBy Jennifer Spry

This autobiography explores the complex issues of gender identity, beginning with John Spry’s boyhood in Australia, through marriage and ultimately to her coming out as Jennifer, a transgendered lesbian. As a child Spry cherished the moments when he was left alone at home so he could dress up in his mother’s clothes; in adolescence he tried hard to prove his manhood by competitive sailing and heavy drinking. When even marriage and fatherhood failed to make a man of him, John began the long journey towards recognition of herself as Jennifer, a woman and a lesbian. A profoundly personal yet provocatively political discussion of courage, gender, sexuality, and transformation.
