  • a Book I think everyone should read, especially women is a biography of my heroine;

    Mlle Natalie Clifford Barney.

    Born in 1876, Natalie Barney -- beautiful, charismatic, brilliant, and wealthy -- was expected to marry well and lead the conventional life of a privileged society woman. But Natalie had no interest in marriage and made no secret of the fact that she was attracted to women. Brought up by a talented and rebellious mother -- the painter Alice Pike Barney -- Natalie cultivated an interest in poetry and the arts. When she moved to Paris in the early 1900s, she plunged into the city's literary scene, opening a famed Left Bank literary salon and engaging in a string of scandalous affairs. For the rest of her long and controversial life, Natalie Barney was revered by writers for her generous, eccentric spirit and reviled by high society for her sexual appetite. In the end, she served as an inspiration and came to know many of the greatest names of twentieth-century arts and letters -- including Marcel Proust, Colette, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Isadora Duncan, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and Truman Capote.

    This book has changed my life and made me even more determined to live true to myself.
    To love what one has is to be resigned to never get what one wants. Natalie Clifford Barney.

  • Congratulations Angela, finally somewhere where we can discuss the greater merits of the Beano! Lol

    Seriously though, I'm looking forward to this thread.

    Every woman is beautiful, some show it with their faces, others show it with their hearts.

  • Hi Girls, (and Boys),

    I just want to tell you all that Sarah Conor has invited me to become the Hostess of the Tranny Fiction and Tranny Books Forums.

    I've accepted her kind offer, so, I'll be trying to get some good "debates" going soon, in those Forums, and coming up with, what I hope you think are, interesting threads.

    Any suggestions, just let me know about them .............. I'm a novice at this, so all your help will be appreciated !!

    Thanks to Sarah.

    Keep an eye out for some new ideas in the near future!

    Angela. xxx.
    What matter if I stand alone? I wait with joy the coming years; My heart shall reap where it has sown, And garner up it's fruit of tears.
