Sleaze paperback presented as the 'case study' of a lesbian trans woman, as understood in a late '60s cultural context: "'Myra Breckinridge' may be entertaining fiction, but this is the real thing!" Erotic exploitation with some genuine historical information mixed in, the book is illustrated with black and white photographs of the French actress Coccinelle (a trans activist in later life), and includes an appendix quoting Harry Benjamin on Christine Jorgenson, while the main text is an an earnest first-person narrative with references to a rich psychological backstory involving a "strangely perverted governess."

Scarce; OCLC locates just four holdings.
