String of Pearls: Stories about Cross-dressing
Allen & Unwin, 1996 - Cross-dressers - 259 pages
Boys will be girls and girls will be boys. String of Pearls is a collection of provocative, sexy stories about cross-dressing amassed by Australian writer and filmmaker Tony Ayres. Often the tales are about gender confusion, undermining the rigid boundaries by which sexuality is defined. They also touch upon themes of sexual ambiguity, clothing as fetish and ritual, and disguise as a vehicle for unveiling hidden truth.
