The subtle story of a young man in the strange world of the “third sex”
“Subtle” isn’t a word we use much around here.
From the back:

And it did not seem ‘unnatural.’ Now he felt himself quiveringly alive with an emotion that threatened to overwhelm him.

And even as he made that decision, he knew that he lied to himself.
