Told with humor and flair, this is the autobiography of one transsexual's wild ride from boyhood as Alfred Brevard ("Buddy") Crenshaw in rural Tennessee to voluptuous female entertainer in Hollywood. This memoir is a rare pre-Women's Movement account of coming to terms with gender identity as Brevard writes frankly about the degree to which she organized her life around pleasing men, and how absurd it all seems to her now. 17 illustrations.

"...an entertaining and heartfelt journey from male to female, ostracism to acceptance, and obscurity to fame. ... Aleshia Brevard's journey is a brilliant, gutsy, and insightful look at a life simultaneously marginalized and in the spotlight." --Lambda Book Report "The Woman I Was not Born to Be is not the kind of book one really expects from an academic press: no statistics, no elaborate theoretical structure. Nor is it the story of people whom history has utterly ignored. Mocked, crucified, tortured, and jailed, yes; ignored, no. But I'm glad Temple University Press chose to publish it: in academia as in real life, a reasonably well-adjusted, kind-hearted woman who was born male is not so common." --Amy Bloom, Wilson Quarterly "Brevard's story adds an entertaining curve to the growing body of literature--academic scientific, theoretical and literary--on transgendered experience, without the self-pity or sentimentality found in many such memoirs...Written in a gossipy style reminiscent of 1950's movie-star autobiographies (which at heart, it is)." --Publishers Weekly "Aleshia Brevard's transformation from an awkward southern boy to Hollywood B-movie starlet is one of the most amazing tales I've ever read. It's filled with madcap adventures, sexual escapades, hart-breaking pain, great loves and great losses. This is a beautiful book, written with a glittering charm and humor and wisdom." --Jonathan Ames, author of The Extra Man
