The Transexual

Canoga Park, CA: Viceroy Books, 1968. 156pp. Mass-market paperback; perfect-bound in illustrated wraps; textblock edges dyed yellow. Near fine, with light edgewear, one small marker smear to front cover.

A thoroughly pornographic sexual coming-of-age novel, with treatments of homosexuality, incest, S&M, etc. Informed by a doctor at age fifteen that he was born intersex, with a "rudimentary vagina under the flesh," the protagonist chooses to begin dressing and identifying as a woman, and later to undergo vaginoplasty and other gender-affirming surgeries. Set in World War II-era France, and ostensibly translated from the French by Jacques Benoit, with an introduction and concluding remarks by an almost certainly fictitious doctor, Heinrich von Keppler.
