Amazon Kindle: Show Trans: A Nonfiction Novel

A nonfiction novel about sex addiction, sex work, navigating the MSM scene, a trip West, dissociative identity disorder, and the struggle to find love, connection, and self-actualization as a non-binary trans person.

I found Elliott to be a wonderful writer.  His prose was intriguing, direct, and a pleasure to read.  His dialogue was believable.  I sometimes struggled with this memoir in places were I found the storyline to be disconnected, or found gaps or transitional problems that left me somewhat puzzled as to where the story had taken me.  I found those issues to be fairly minor things that a good editor can help fix, and regardless, Elliott is a very strong writer.
