With an Introduction by Peter Tatchell We're all something else inside... 1952. Standing in a cold Suffolk field with her family, six-year-old Mary Ward has a revelation: I am not Mary. That is a mistake. I am not a girl. I'm a boy. So begins Mary's heroic struggle to change gender. Moving from the claustrophobic rural community of the 1950s to London in the swinging Sixties and beyond to the glitter of America in the Seventies, Sacred Country is the story of a journey to find a place of safety and fulfilment in a savage and confusing world. Over a million Rose Tremain books sold `A writer of exceptional talent ... Tremain is a writer who understands every emotion' Independent I `There are few writers out there with the dexterity or emotional intelligence to rival that of the great Rose Tremain' Irish Times `Tremain has the painterly genius of an Old Master, and she uses it to stunning effect' The Times `Rose Tremain is one of the very finest British novelists' Salman Rushdie `Tremain is a writer of exemplary vision and particularity. The fictional world is rendered with extraordinary vividness' Marcel Theroux, Guardian
