Description

The true story of trans punk performance art sensation Jayne County's wild and daring life.

Read this book! Live and learn, suckers

Full of insights ... an enjoyable alternative to stories that prioritise a desire to fit into bourgeois norms.

Rock's first openly trans singer. Jayne County took part in the Stonewall uprising and influenced artists like David Bowie, The Ramones and Patti Smith.

The saga of a true rock & roll eccentric ... hilariously brash, this autobiography offers a raw and raunchy tour of the underground music scene.

I implore you, dear readers, think of all the things you could have been, if Jayne County were your mother.

A rollickin' time capsule that reads like a dishy who's who of freakdom ... Inspired, intelligent storytelling ... spellbinding. Testifies to County's unflagging and inspirational courage.

Jayne County's autobiography is intelligent and thoughtful. Only she expresses compassion for the casualties of that era.

A masterpiece of transsexual healing, a rock-and-roll Naked Civil Servant.'

An utterly shameless read, packed solid with superstar cameos ... a captivating, though often disturbing read. Probably the most honest, in-your-face rock book ever written.

It's one of the most extraordinary sagas in rock history: you read her autobiography with your mouth hanging open, not least because, throughout it all, County never really stopped wrecking. No matter where she fetches up, she somehow manages to end up shocking not just the solids, but the other people intent on shocking the solids.

Her revealing memoir Man Enough To Be A Woman moves through the most exciting counter-cultural scenes in the 20th century... fulfils its promise as an enthralling, riotous memoir by a truly radical individual.

County wants to be herself, wants you to be yourself, and wants you to be so without apologizing or self-censoring. Man Enough to Be a Woman offers an alternative, less respectable, more punk blueprint for a new kind of trans and gender non-conforming liberation.

Intimate storytelling from trailblazing trans singer ... inspiring, absorbing

Jayne County is an American singer, playwright, actress and artist. She was the vocalist of Wayne County & the Electric Chairs and went on to become rock's first openly transgender singer. Her most recent exhibition was Bastet, Goddess of Wet Dreams at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center in February 2020.
