Miss Vera's Cross-Dress for Success: A Resource Guide for Boys Who Want to Be Girls

Veronica Vera, Author Villard Books $14 (240p) ISBN 978-0-8129-9195-6
Ten years ago in New York City, Miss Vera founded the only finishing school for ""boys who want to be girls,"" and remains its stern headmistress. Much of her advice for the aspiring cross-dresser is old fashioned common sense flavored with street smarts: choose your tranny (transvestite, of course) name with some care; at minimum always have beard cover, false eyelashes, groomed eyebrows and a well-maintained wig on hand. Not only will she help aspiring girls select the perfect head of hair, she'll also point them to a wealth of information and goods to be found on the Internet. Miss Vera dishes out healthy servings of self-esteem and encouragement along with the brutal facts about high heels and hair removal, and the ethics of underwear stealing: it's ok for kids, but ""adults go shopping."" Miss Vera and her staff are committed to helping everyone get in touch with his or her ""inner sissy,"" and remind us all that since ""life is art,"" it's best lived with tolerance, creativity and flair.
