Reviews

A fascinating and poignant story. . . . Revealing, humorous, and provocative. --Library Journal A searing tale of the traumas and rewards of gender change. . . . A powerful indictment of legal, medical, and institutional obstruction. --Foreword Reviews A tautly crafted memoir of her transition from Don McCloskey, conservative Chicago school economist, to Deirdre McCloskey, power shopper, domestic superachiever, and campy doyenne of difference feminism. --Ruth Shalit Lingua Franca The very courageous story of someone trying to live an honest life, whatever the consequences. --Jeannie Marshall National Post That an affluent, upper-middle-class person should be so powerless against a mental-health bureaucracy still subscribing to its offical pronouncement that transsexualism is a 'gender identity disorder' makes for gripping reading. --Booklist This is a woman worth knowing. She has given us a highly readable, dramatic account of her crossing. --Maxine Kumin New York Times Book Review A testimony to her struggles and courage, Crossing invites the reader to enter Deirdre (formerly Donald) McCloskey's mind as she decides to become a woman after a lifetime as a man, husband, and father. --Kirkus Reviews
