it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, science-fiction
Read from September 27 to October 07, 2011

I have read neither of the two pseudonyms nor the author's own work before, but I am so thankful a friend gave me this biography. Alice and I truly have much in common and it's interesting to see how she played with gender for so long until losing her male identity killed her fictional voice. Will have to find some of Tiptree's stories soon. They sound incredible.
