Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983443823, Paperback)In this engaging memoir, author Alana Nicole Sholar shares her bitter-sweet journey of being born a transgender individual in Kentucky in 1961...a time and a place where such feelings weren't talked about...and never admitted...EVER. He lived and worked on some of Kentucky's now famous thoroughbred farms (and even trained to become a jockey) while hiding, and running from, the secret within. He struggled with his difference well into his mid-30's before he became aware there were others like him.
Although the challenges may differ, Alana's story is a wonderfully uplifting and encouraging resource for anyone traveling their own journey of self-discovery - and we're all on the path of discovering 'self.'
Lead by fear of admitting his feelings, even to himself, Alan is a fast driving, hard drinking, pill popping guitar player with a sex addiction that leads to multiple partner encounters and the consequences. On the way to becoming Alana, with the first step being a legal name change in 2005, she imagines what it must be like to be with a man. When the opportunity
presents itself she struggles with making a decision to do something that, once done, could never be undone.
In the end, Hung in the Middle is a love story...one of those familiar--yet always irresistible--tales about falling in love with someone who is inaccessible, but never giving up. It is about learning to love yourself. And, it is a personal triumph about 21st century America's evolution toward the acceptance and celebration of gender diversity.
