Publisher's Summary

"If I could have chosen, I would have been born a woman/My mother once told me she would have named me Laura/I would grow up to be strong and beautiful like her". (The Ocean)
A searing account of her search for identity and true self, Tranny reveals the struggles and victories that Laura Jane Grace, the lead singer of the cult punk rock band Against Me!, experienced in her quest for gender transition.
Illuminated by Laura Jane's never-before-published journal entries reaching back to childhood, Tranny is an intensely personal and revelatory look inside her struggles with identity and addiction. Grappling with everything from sex, drugs, and failed marriages to the music and soul of a punk rock star, this memoir paints a vivid portrait of one of the most revolutionary transgender icons of our time.

Chapter 3 cuts out mid chapter ????

Loved the book, patiently awaited the release of the audio book, chapter three skips mid David Johansson story right to chapter four. Kind of a bummer.

Powerful story and performance.

This book started off like a trip down memory lane. I grew up in Gainesville and knew many of the locations and people in it. It's amazing to hear. I felt voyeuristic to be hearing a person I know confess so personally and completely her innermost feelings and experiences. I find myself wishing all the amazing people I've met would write their stories so I could see into their lives and understand them like this. I think everybody has a story worth hearing, and this one is no exception. Definitely not your run of the mill rock star coming of age story. I'm also a huge fan of authors reading their own autobiographies. It makes the experience that much more pleasurable. Thank you Laura for letting us know this part of you.
