    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    Story
    "The Original, Timeless Transsexual Autobiography"

    Jorgensen was the first widely known person to have sex reassignment surgery (male to female). She became a spokesperson for transsexual and transgender people when "trans" wasn't even in the popular lexicon.

    She was a beautiful blonde who was famous for being classy and smart— a lady with taste and talent, and had a successful career in theater and film.

    If you have never heard of her, this book is a must. If you've heard of her but forgot her, revisit!
