Blends the genres of memoir, journal, and first-person narrative fiction, and challenges the reader with the issue of gender. Volume 2 continues this romp through issues of gender, U.S. cultural history, stand-up comedy, and self-development. LeslieAnn is stand-up comedian who spices this narrative with constant jokes and one-liners. As she tells her story, she includes black-and-white photos to evoke her early life in which she periodically changes genderseither for convenience or to get ahead in life. This fictional memoir addresses issues of gender discrimination, cross-dressing, and transgender psychology, while reflecting on the lessons learned from her life experiences. LeslieAnn's jokes and insights are unconventional and confrontational regarding the cross-gender issues, but they are also a doorway to the spiritual lessons learned throughout."
