  • About the Edition

    EX-G.I. becomes blonde beauty. Fifteen years ago, a slender young woman stepped off a plane from Denmark to be greeted by howling reporters and an outraged American public. The woman, Christine Jorgensen, had been born a male and after living as a shy, effeminate young man for twenty four years, had been surgigally transformed into a woman ...
    For Christine, the transformation signalled the end of a tortured search for sexual identity. For the press and public, however, "George-Christine" became America"s No. 1 topic of conversation.
    Now in a daring, intimate and courageous autobiography, Christine Jorgensen sets the record straight - answering all the questions, correcting the misconceptions, and describing with remarkable candor, the reasons for and the results of her astonishing sexual change.
