(You Don't Know) The Half of It tells the story of George's life through the eyes of Bobbi, from early childhood in Brooklyn, NY, to Catholic elementary school on Long Island, and high school and beyond. That life included such diverse experiences as serving as the first Dean of Austin (Texas) Community College, running marathons, marrying, divorcing, and remarrying their first wife, writing and performing sketch comedy and standup, working for Shell Oil in Nigeria and as a Technical Writer and Editor for Dell Computers, General Electric R&D, and at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory. Through it all, he stayed true to his mantra: Fake it 'til you make it."
Praise for the Book
"5 STARS "… a delightful and honest memoir of a time before gender identity was an issue. If Forest Gump were transgender, this is the book he would have written."
James Young, RN, PhD, Professor (Ret.) Columbia State Community College
5 STARS "George and Bobbi’s story is told with the same wry humor they live life. Tender and funny, this memoir shows most readers a lifestyle they haven’t known. Truthful to the point you can smell the AirWick, it's fascinating, and often hilarious."
Laura Ricci, Author, "Twelve Views from Womens Eyes"
5 STARS “… so raw , piercing and hilarious! I have gotten permission to read the foreword to my queer studies class at Columbia University on Thursday….Thank you for the gift of your memoir.”
Melissa Middlebrook, Lecturer/Consultant
5 STARS "This engaging memoir illuminates not just the author's experience but that of a whole generation. More, it contributes an important, often neglected piece to our understanding of gender identities. An impressive achievement--and a great read."
Alison Jean Ash, Author ("You're So Vain," "Staying Alive")
