Synopsis

Though Robert J. Rowe has disguised his true identity, this is the true story of a college history instructor and writer who leads a altogether alternative life at home, with his loving and understanding wife. This unapologetic fetishist reveals how he became interested in women's clothing, explores his sexual development, and details a personal interest that turned into a private lifestyle, as well as a new area of study for the scholar. More than just a straightforward autobiography, Bert & Lori reaches beyond the personal to include thoughtful psychological and behavioural issues imbedded in cross-dressing.Helping to make this book a one-of-a-kind are the additional writings by Jill Rowe, the author's wife, an experienced journalist who adds her unique perspective on the secret life she shares with her husband. Mrs Rowe's candid yet moving and exciting reflections stand as the only systematic discussion to date of the experiences of a cross-dresser's wife. "Bert & Lori" is highly personal and frank regarding sexual issues; a story that others dare not write. Yet it also contains virtually all available research on cross-dressing, the philosophy that inspired the author, and recollections of his first failed marriage. Written clearly and convincingly, the book allows the public to look at transvestism with open eyes and with understanding.
