One Man's Journey Through Womanhood
Add to Wish List
On the way to rebuilding the temple that is now his body, he
stumbled upon his soul... Both Sides Now is a vivid
and compelling account of one man's search for wholeness,
leading through multiple, complex, and life-threatening
surgeries that not only transformed him physically, but
emotionally and spiritually.
While he was born into a female body, Dhillon Khosla never
felt fully at home in his skin. But while he knew very early
on that his true identity was male, he spent almost twenty
years repressing this knowledge and trying to fiercely to
embrace the beautiful appearing female form into which he
developed. Trapped beneath the female disguise, he lived his
life from the outside looking in.
Shortly after turning 28, he came across an article about
men who were born into female bodies and had undergone
surgeries to reclaim their male identity. As soon as he
began reading the words, Khosla felt flashes of recognition
stirring within, and for the first time, hope.
In this spellbinding memoir Khosla shares his extraordinary
journey to reclaim his manhood -- a journey that would
ultimately lead through fifteen surgeries, one of which
almost claimed his life and revealed the very depths of his
commitment. As Khosla continued to bravely fight his way
home, his nights became filled with beautiful, allegorical --
and sometimes prophetic -- dreams, while his days brought
insight upon insight into the many ways we as men and women
leave our fingerprints upon each other. But most poignant of
all, was his discovery of the true meaning of self-love: the
willingness to turn away from the external forces that tell
us who we ought to be, towards that one, inner voice that
has known all along.
