Frankly Kellie by Kellie Maloney
Not many people have been a unique a journey as Kellie Maloney. Born 'Frank Maloney' into a tough working class family in the 1950s, the young man gravitated towards the world of boxing, where he became a very well respected boxing promoter and worked with the likes of undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and world champions Paul Ingle and Scott Harrison. Decades later, Frank decided the time was right to become the person he was always destined to become, and in this enthralling autobiography, recalls in great detail the unique instance where one life ends and one can begin. Insightful and astute, Kellie talks openly about the years of anguish and torment, recounting extracts from her diary and explaining in unflinching detail the emotional roller coaster she endured over the years, from childhood through to telling loved ones the truth.With humour and humility this book takes the reader on a journey through the transgender process - the physicality and the emotion - and celebrates the life of an incredible individual.
