From the Publisher"Dawn Langley Simmons — stoic, charming, and utterly bizarre — was one of the great taboo-trashing eccentrics of our time. Edward Ball carefully unravels the mystery and explains the fantasy in fascinating detail."
— John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
"Ball's genteel detective story...charts the course of an almost absurdly colorful life."
— The New Yorker
"Edward Ball trolls the Peninsula of Lies in Charleston, South Carolina, for the taboo-breaking story of a mysterious sex-changed socialite."
— Vanity Fair
"Excellent....Ball sympathetically but skeptically sifts the facts and rumors that survived Simmons at her death in 2000....Peeling back the layers, he discovers a fascinating enigma."
