With an eye for the sensual bloom of young schoolgirls, and the torrid style of the romantic novels of her day, Herculine Barbin tells the story of her life as a hermaphrodite. Herculine was designated female at birth. A pious girl in a Catholic orphanage, a bewildered adolescent enchanted by the ripening bodies of her classmates, a passionate lover of another

Foucault wrote fiction and self-help/essay books on many subjects, including gender-identity. I do not believe this is an accurate historical document but a fake-memoir with some interesting points... Other post-modernist books have been published in the same fashion.. See Poor Things as an example. Please email me if you have more information on this.
