None So Pretty: The Sexing of Rebecca Pine : the Story of a Changing Life

Front Cover
Routledge, 2000 - 191 pages
Until he reached the age of 64, Robert J. Pine had led a life that was both ordinary and extraordinary. Born into a middle-class family in suburban England. Pine grew up concealing a secret passion. Throughout his years as a public schoolboy, a soldier, and actor, a teacher, a sales manager, an artist, a husband, a father, a divorcee and a grandfather, he was always asking himself the same question: Who am I? He had done what society had expected of him: he had girlfriends, he got married, he had children; yet whenever he could, he tried to discover who he really was, secretly dressing as a woman.None So Pretty is the incredible story of Robert's traumatic transformation into Rebecca and the shockwaves his new persona causes in his peaceful English village. It is also a love story, as Jean, his wife, struggles to accept the changes in their lives, and the story of strength in the face of adversity, of the courage to be true to oneself, and of faith in human nature.
