From the publisher

How does one experience things from the viewpoint of the other sex? It is this question that has led to Vildot's creation of Ruth, the genre-defining story of a sex change told by the protagonist through a series of letters to an anonymous friend. Far from the condemnatory gaze or noise of those who understand life as nothing but outward appearances, Ruth demonstrates the sentimental and intellectual intimacy of a man transitioning into a woman, and describes a profund, touching process in which frustrations, ideas of liberty and changes of identity are interwoven. Without descending into easy morbosity or exhibitions of sensationalist tendencies, Ruth represents Guillem Viladot's indignation at both masculine and feminine sensibilities, while championing diversity of thought, love, liberty, and, most importantly, desire.
