MY BROTHER, MY SISTER
MY BROTHER, MY SISTER is a very personal story about the author’s brother who, already in his late fifties, a father and twice married, decided to live the rest of his life as a woman. Molly Haskell received a Guggenheim Award for this book in 2010, which is long-awaited and the product of years of hard labor.
Molly’s articles have appeared widely in publications such as Town and Country, Ladies’ Home Journal, Family Circle, New York Magazine, The New York Times, Vogue, Ms., and Woman’s World. She is primarily known as a film critic (her books include the now classic FROM REVERANCE TO RAPE: THE TREATMENT OF WOMEN IN THE MOVIES (Chicago, 1987) and, most recently, FRANKLY, MY DEAR: “GONE WITH THE WIND” REVISITED (Yale, 2009)), but also wrote an earlier memoir describing her husband’s illness (A MEMOIR, LOVE AND OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASES (Morrow, 1990)).
