When feminist writer Susan Faludi learned that her 76-year-old father --- long estranged and living in Hungary --- had undergone sex reassignment surgery, the revelation would launch her on an extraordinary inquiry into the meaning of identity in the modern world and in her own haunted family saga. How was this new parent who identified as “a complete woman now” connected to the silent, explosive and ultimately violent father she had known, the photographer who had built his career on the alteration of images? Faludi chases that mystery into the recesses of her suburban childhood and her father’s many previous incarnations.
