Details: A heartbreaking account told with compassion and grace, John Colapinto's AS NATURE MADE HIM spent seven weeks on national bestseller lists. It reveals, for the very first time, the complete story of David Reimer, who was raised as a girl after losing his penis in a botched infant circumcision. But the cost to David and his family proved to be huge. David recounts the teasing from classmates who knew that something was wrong with little "Brenda." He recalls the bizarre sexual games that Dr. Money subjected Brenda and his twin brother to during the course of treatment. Most of all he reveals the devastating emotional pain of constantly feeling as if he were a freak, unable to fit in anywhere, and unable to understand what was wrong. A story of courage and survival, AS NATURE MADE HIM is also a fascinating exploration on the elusive nature of sexual identity. With Colapinto's unprecedented access to David and his family, including never-before-published photographs, AS NATURE MADE HIM is a powerful and absorbing read.
