Hi

I've just finished reading Midwives by Chris Bohjalian, and I found it un-putdownable. The narrative perspective of the 14-year old daughter was completely convincing, and I had to stop myself looking at the end of the book to see if the midwife in question won her court suit or not.

I would like to read some more of this author, and wondered about his book, Trans-Sister Radio. It seems to have an interesting plot.

If anyone has read Trans-Sister Radio, I'd love to hear what you thought of it.
Thanks.

Kate

I thought Midwives was fantastic. Good ending too. I assumed Chris Bohjalian was a woman because of the subject.
I haven't read Trans-sister Radio but I'm not inspired by the title.

Chris Bohjalian is actually a man, which I found difficult to remember when I was reading Midwives. It really seemed as if it was written by a woman, and I don't mean just that it was written from the perspective of a 14-year old girl - it was the whole feel of the book.

I think Trans-Sister Radio is about a new relationship (a few weeks or months old) where the man admits that he's always felt he was really a woman, and that he's booked in for a sex change operation! The main story is how his new girlfriend adjusts to this revelation. I think it sounds absolutely fascinating, and if Bohjalian deals with the subject as sensitively as he did in Midwives, it will be an excellent book.
