Watakushi wa toransujenda: futatsu no sei no hazama de aru geneki koko kyoshi no ikikata [I am transgender: the way of life of an active high school teacher who lives in the space between two genders]

Tama: Neoraifu, 2000. 221p., very good hardcover with author photo, text in Japanese.

The author is a high school social studies teacher from Kyushu who identifies as a "part-time transgender" (photos show the daily ritual of transformation from male to female). We are introduced to the author's conservative Kyushu upbringing and resistance to stern parental discipline and traditionally masculine gender roles. In a discussion of sexual harassment by subway molesters the author describes complex feelings: detesting being objectified but also thoroughly enjoying passing as a woman. Goes into complications of marriage when the wife figures everything out.
