Personal Quote:

On experience: It is idle to pretend that the world feels as fresh when you are 60 as it does when you are 21. You have seen too much of it...literature is more thrilling before critical relativity arises; the worst of wine, in the early years of one's life, is better than the best toward the end.


Underwent sex reassignment surgery in 1972. Her book, Conundrum, chronicles her thoughts and feelings of her experience.
