Summary

We have read the stories of those who have ''crossed'' lines of race and class and culture. But few have written of crossing--completely and entirely--the gender line. Crossing is the story of Deirdre McCloskey (formerly Donald), once a golden boy of conservative economics and a child of 1950s and 1960s privilege, and her dramatic and poignant journey to becoming a woman. McCloskey's account of her painstaking efforts to learn to ''be a woman'' unearth fundamental questions about gender and identity, and hatreds and anxieties, revealing surprising answers.
