Man Into Woman: The First Sex Change by Lili ElbeThis riveting account of the transformation of the Danish painter Einar Wegener into Lili Elbe is a remarkable journey from man to woman. Einar Wegener was a leading artist in late 1920s Paris. One day his wife Grete asked him to dress as a woman to model for a portrait. It was a shattering event which began a struggle between his public male persona and emergent female self, Lili. Einar was forced into living a double life; enjoying a secret hedonist life as Lili, with Grete and a few trusted friends, whilst suffering in public as Einar, driven to despair and almost to suicide. Doctors, unable to understand his condition, dismissed him as hysterical. Lili eventually forced Einar to face the truth of his being - he was, in fact, a woman. This bizarre situation took an extraordinary turn when it was discovered that his body contained primitive female sex organs. There followed a series of dangerous experimental operations and a confrontation with the conventions of the age until Lili was eventually liberated from Einar - a freedom that carried the ultimate price. Now with a foreword written by a modern transsexual - the book has not been published in English for decades, and a sensation when it first appeared over seventy years ago - this new edition of Man into Woman, the birth, life and confessions of Lili Elbe, is a story of a marriage and of love and romance that paints a fascinating portrait of a 1930s European artistic community. Compiled fron Lilis own letters and manuscripts, and those of the people who adored her, Man into Woman is the Genesis of the Gender Revolution.
Amazon launches Israel site, but won’t spell doom for malls… yet, analysts say
Something about fall demands a new stack of books. In this sensational coming-of-age novel, a Dominican teenager named Ana immigrates to midcentury New York City by way of a loveless marriage to a man twice her age. As Ana grows closer to her brother-in-law, she wrestles with her duty to her family back home, who hope to follow her to America. At once tender, musical, and electric, this novel meditates on how immigration shapes lives, from both without and within. In She Said , they pull back the curtain on months of gumshoe reporting, while also investigating the structural tools of complicity that inoculate abusers from consequences. Kantor and Twohey even-handedly assess the impact of the MeToo movement thus far while also turning a perceptive, hopeful eye on the way forward.

Amazon on Sunday launched its retail operations in Israel, a move that will make online ordering easier for Israelis. Analysts say they do not expect a huge immediate impact on Israeli shopping patterns. The dedicated website, albeit still in English, will enable Israeli retailers to sell directly to customers in Israel using its online platform. The products and services offered by the Israel-dedicated site will specifically target Israeli users, but the US firm is not planning, at least initially, to set up a local logistics center. Instead, merchants that list their products on the dedicated Amazon website will have to supply the products directly to the client from their own warehouses, rather than using Amazon distribution services. An Amazon fulfillment center processes orders in Aurora, Colorado, May 3, The service will be more convenient, products more easily available and delivery times shorter.
