Out of the Ordinary

Now available for the first time – more than half a century after it was written – is the memoir of Michael Dillon/Lobzang Jivaka (1915–62), the Anglo-Irish doctor and Buddhist monastic novice chiefly known to scholars of sex, gender, and sexuality for his pioneering transition from female to male between 1939 and 1949, and for his groundbreaking 1946 book Self: A Study in Ethics and Endocrinology. Here at last is Dillon/Jivaka’s extraordinary life story told in his own words in Out Of The Ordinary. An Afterword, ‘A Mapless Journey,’ by London-based literary agent Andrew Hewson, traces the typsescript memoir’s provinence and preservation prior to its eventual publication.
