Issues: 

The trans memoir practically constitutes its own genre, with varying degree of success. Like self-published poetry, you sometimes get the sense that the story is more important for the author to tell than it is for the audience to hear. For 10 years, She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders, by Jennifer Finney Boylan, has stood out. This is due in large part to the writing itself. Jenny was an established author before her transition. She knows how to craft a story, make you care about her characters, even if they’re real people, and she has an astonishing capacity for finding humor in unexpected moments.
