“I think that I was irrational, even insane, at the time. My transsexualism had taken hold of me with such obsessive force that I could not concentrate on anything else. There I was, a fifty-year-old professional academic librarian who had desperately wanted to be female ever since memories began …” In 1986 John Cummings became Katherine Cummings and a whole life changed. In this painfully honest account of John’s transformation into a woman, Katherine tells of years of fantasising behind locked doors, of the betrayal felt by her family and the final relief of surgery. Katherine’s Diary covers a lifetime of self-discovery and self-destruction told with acerbic wit and crisp observation.
What the critics said about the first edition of Katherine’s Diary:-
“… it is impossible to read this book and remain unsympathetic to the pressures faced by transsexuals—or unadmiring of the courage with which Cummings has confronted them.” - Dennis Altman, Australian Weekend Review
“… extremely well written, combining wit and literacy … with hard won honesty and dignity.” - Geoff Sharrock, Australian Book Review.
“If you ever think that life tends to get complicated, read this book and be thankful.” - Noel Shaw, The Examiner, Launceston
