Gentosha, Tokyo. 2005, 195p., text in Japanese, very good trade paperback in pictorial wraps. Carrousel Maki became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s as the first Japanese to undergo sex-reassignment surgery. She subsequently had a successful career as an actress and showgirl. The title reflects the fact that it took many years for her gender to be officially changed on her identity records, while also speaking to the content of the book, which is mainly advice for women on how to remain beautiful, healthy, and happy into old age.
