As one of Britain's best and most loved travel writers, Jan Morris has led an extraordinary life. Perhaps her most remarkable work is this grippingly honest account of her ten-year transition from man to woman - its pains and joys, its frustrations and discoveries. On first publication in 1974, the book generated enormous interest and curiosity around the world, and was subsequently chosen by The Times as one of the '100 Key Books of Our Time'. Including a new introduction, this re-issue marks a return to that particular journey.

'Certainly the best first-hand account ever written by a traveller across the boundaries of sex.' Daily Mail

Review:

A compelling and moving read, a world away from the tabloid titillation that normally surrounds the subject. -- Daily Mail, 12 April 2002

A perfectly formed work of art, achieving the state of grace to which its creator so elegantly aspires. -- Times Literary Supplement, 17 May 2002

In a new introduction, Morris describes the book as a period piece. She does herself and injustice. It is a classic. -- The Times, 30 March 2002

The book is as compelling today as when it first appeared. -- Evening Standard, 8 April 2002

Writing about her self, a place she has explored profoundly, she achieves inspired reportage and a courageous self-analysis. -- Observer, 24 March 2002

Book Description:

Conundrum by Jan Morris - one of Britain's best and best-loved travel writers - is perhaps her most remarkable work; a grippingly honest account of her ten-year transition from man to woman.
