This collection of stories has nothing to do with my odyssey from man to woman, that subject is well covered in the autobiographies. In fact, the stories have nothing to do with sex, or gender. I wrote these stories to chronicle some of my life apart from what I was notorious for-interesting things I experienced unrelated to my infamy.
These stories are all mixed together, some written as "Dick," some as "Renée," some from childhood, others in my dotage. Some are from my life as a young doctor in training and then a Naval medical officer, some as a parent, some experiences with famous people-all written in the first person-Dick, Renée, doc, "super senior," whatever I was at the time. Like Papillon, the famous Frenchman who wrote about escaping from Devil's Island twice, he did have another life of great adventure. So did I.
