2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Arlene W. Robinson on February 6, 2003
Format: Paperback
An entertaining, honest and balanced account by a woman who not only teaches tolerance via the telling of her life story, but lives it every day.
I felt uplifted as I read about Sherman-Jones' experiences, even by the parts that must have been difficult for her to live through, and surely difficult to write about so bravely. Because of her willingness to share her life so openly in the pages of this book, at times I felt that I was right there, in story with her.
Well, perhaps not while she was wrestling the midget in the pool of Jell-O. :-) But the ability to connect with the reader, and make the story seem, at times, like the reader's own, is the mark of an excellent writer. Sherman-Jones' mastery of this important benchmark makes me eager to see the next book by this first-time author.

Format: Paperback
My Life as a Gay Man in a Straight Woman's Body is much more than the entertaining slice of life history of Carol Sherman-Jones. Carol, one of Cincinnati's most energetic and in your face personalities is also one of our finest non-gay allies. She takes the reader through her life, thus far, both troubled and triumphant. She offers an honest assessment of both her gifts and difficult life struggles. Carol invites the reader into interesting vignettes of her history, well written and presented in her own colorful descriptions and charming but blunt style. While her writing style is entertaining, the reader will come away feeling priviledged to have been included on the painful road of a woman whose life journey toward recovery has a message of hope and joyful inclusion for all--gay, straight or, well, whatever. Cincinnatians who frequented either or both of Carol's wonderful restaurants will sit back to remember how it felt to be a part of Carol's social family. Romances started and ended there. Friendships were developed and our communtities learned the news of one another while intersecting with fellow travelers and partyers. Carol learned to make a place for herself in the world and then opened the door to the rest of us to join the celebration. Thanks, Carol!

Format: Paperback
The book is very well writen but I find it very offensive to the transgender community. I found this at the book fair yesterday and was expecting a story of her transition. This term should not be used by her. There are some of us guys who are men and are gay. We have had to live our lives as females and then we are criticize because of our sexual orientation.

Reading Carol's book was just that; pure pleasure. Real friendships, real pain, inspiring hope no matter what your cross to bear or how lost you might feel. This woman dealt with more eccentric folks and dedicated pals than most of us experience in a life time. Carol holds NOTHING back, so this book is NOT for the fainthearted or those bound by too much social appropriateness...teehee...Heaps of fun!!
This piece would make an incredible and heartwarming movie.
