Author Veronique Renard omitted something critical in her popular2003 memoir Pantau in India. As if leaving behind Dutch corporatelife, converting to Buddhism, and living among Tibetan refugees inthe Himalayas was not amazing enough, Veronique transitioned frommale to female 25 years ago and has never mentioned it since.
Until now. In her remarkable follow-up memoir Pholomolo, Veroniqueopens up for the first time. Laugh-out-loud moments punctuate thisheartfelt portrait of her childhood struggles to express herself in aworld that told her she had to be a boy. After transition at seventeen, she never discusses her background with family, friends, colleagues, and lovers. Now, she shares her unique experiences as a transsexualfemale in the occidental and oriental world with absolute candor.
"PHOLOMOLO-NO MAN NO WOMAN" is a remarkable and inspiringstory about yet another facet in Veronique's already amazing life, astory about learning to live your own truth every day.
"A delightfully funny, unabashedly erotic, and deeply moving portrait."
