In 1976, I was one of the most famous people in the world. The paparazzi were on my trail twenty-four hours a day, hungry for any photo, the less flattering the better. The mainstream press was better, sometimes. People, Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated-I was featured in them all, an international phenomenon....And what had I done to merit this interest'...Simply put, I had undergone a male-to-female sex-change operation and then had the temerity to play in an amateur women's tennis tournament.... To compound my audacity, I had not hung my head and apologized. I had gone to court, won my case, and played professional tennis as a woman.... I took a stand on principle, but it exacted an emotional and financial price. But I have not written No Way Renee as a justification of my life; rather, it is a look at the second half of a life that I hope no longer needs justifying. Book jacket.
