""In the summer of 2004 I set out to investigate someone I scarcely knew, my father. The project began with a grievance, the grievance of a daughter whose parent had absconded from her life. I was in pursuit of a scofflaw, an artful dodger who had skipped out on so many things--obligation, affection, culpability, contrition. I was preparing an indictment, amassing discovery for a trial. But somewhere along the line, the prosecutor became a witness." So begins Susan Faludi's extraordinary inquiry into the meaning of identity in the modern world and in her own haunted family saga."--

How does the child -even as an adult- react when a parent changes gender? In this book Susan Faludi, feminist and theorist, reconnects with a father she barely knew when he emails her with news that he is now not Steven, but Stephanie. She travels to Hungary a number of times over succeeding years, re-establishing a relationship with this new person, and trying to make connections between the two halves of his life (something Stephanie did not try to do). It's a cerebral book, but rooted in the emotions. See my full review here:
