An inspiring, no-holds-barred account of one womana€™s quest to find her true self. Shelley Bridgman is an award-winning stand-up comic, actor, script writer, professional speaker and a leading Psychotherapist - but it wasn't always this way. First she survived the hedonistic sixties with the inevitable round of clubbing, fashion and drugs; then she made the most of the seventies, travelling to over sixty countries whilst running a travel business - but it was the eighties that tested her to her limits. Battling depression, bankruptcy, addiction and suicide attempts; Bridgman found the courage to confront her need to change gender and achieve harmony with herself. This is a story about identity, self-discovery and acceptance. It is also testament to a profoundly touching love story that has lasted over forty years. qBrilliant, captivating and thought-provoking. Shelley shares her story with such honesty and openness.

A born traveler, her journey has taken her not only around the world, but around herself, ob- serving her own life from every angle, even as the smooth exterior began to crack.
