The reissue of Jan Morris's 1973 autobiography translates well to the audiobook medium. A well-known travel writer, Morris was one of the first people in public life to discuss her experiences as a transgender person. Roy McMillan's narration includes authentic accents for characters of different cultures and changes in pacing that enhance the peaks and valleys of unfolding events. His timbre is only a half-range deeper than Morris's own speaking voice, and his accent matches the author's. A new foreword by the author, also read by McMillan, contextualizes the now dated terminology that we hear in the body of the text--for example, "transsexual" instead of "transgender."
