She Was A Man

Who War Dr Charlotte Back?

Short Books 141pp £9.99 order from our bookshop

This book provides a tantalising glimpse into the social, sexual and academic underworld: the land of Lonely Hearts, bogus university degrees, mysterious personal ads, tabloid exposures, frauds of every hue, and all the strange things that probably still go on in mansion blocks north of the park. It is a sad and desperate stow but at the heart of it stands an astonishing individual with incredible guts, style and cheek.
