Product Details

Praise

Ravishingly written, meticulously researched, and ingeniously plotted, Brian O’Doherty’s picaresque novel is on par with Hilary Mantel’s evocations of the treacherous court of Henry VIII. Brian O’Doherty’s profound meditations on personal identity and political secrecy impart both an unexpected timeliness and a rare psychological depth to unforgettable scenes of ancien-régime duplicity, debauchery, and self-deception.—Martin Filler, The New York Review of Books

The Crossdresser’s Secret is O’Doherty’s best book, the richest convergence of his erudition, polemical provocation and penchant for alter egos. The writing is brilliant, clear, unsentimental, and the pleasures afforded by it are grownup ones indeed.

Brooks Adams, The Brooklyn Rail
