New Cover for Updated “She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders.” Plus, a sneak peak at the new preface!

The cover for the updated edition of SNoT seeks to echo the design of the original as well as to give a good hint of the new goodies inside.

Many of you know that She’s Not There will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next spring.  In honor of the event, Random House is bringing out a new and revised edition of the book.  It will contain a new preface and a new afterword by JFB, bringing the story up to date.  It will also contain a new epilogue written by Deirdre Finney Boylan, better known to readers of SNoT as “Grace.”  She will write about the challenges she and Jenny faced, and the love that they share.

The most common question Deedie and Jenny get is, “Are you still married?”  Not to spoil the new edition, or anything, but the answer is an emphatic yes.

Here’s a quick look at the cover for the revised edition.  The goal was to retain the look of the original book while also drawing attention to all the new goodies inside.

The new SHE’S NOT THERE goes on sale on April 23rd, concurrently with Jenny’s new book, STUCK IN THE MIDDLE WITH YOU: A MEMOIR OF PARENTHOOD IN THREE GENDERS, about which there’s plenty more on this site.  Both books–along with the middle volume of the trilogy, I’M LOOKING THROUGH YOU, will be available both as actual books as well as ebooks via Kindle and iBooks.

As Jeff Probst likes to ask on “Survivor,”  Worth playing for?  How about if I gave you a sneak peak at the new preface to the tenth anniversary edition, available by simply clicking right here?

    Jack was my professor at JHU when I did my thesis, back in the day. After many years, I can now confidently say I finally understand his definition of plot. Which is, of course, "the perturbation of an unstable homeostatic system and its catastrophic restoration to a new and complexified equilibrium."
