"A collection of stylish daring, tonal mastery and smart, tough love."-New York Times Book Review
UK Kirkus Review » Although only six years old at the time, Mary Ward will never forget the two minutes silence held in honour of King George VI. For she has a revelation - a mistake has been made - she is not a girl at all - she is a boy and will grow up to be a man. So begins the soul-searching struggle to become Martin Ward from a wretchedly miserable childhood in rural East Anglia to Nashville, Tennessee, home of country music via Earl's Court. But this is more than the saga of a sex change, it is also the story of the fascinatingly disturbed eccentrics who are part of Mary's life - her family and friends. A highly original and complex novel, both profound and humorous. (Kirkus UK)
