The world of Frankie, a stripper, is turned upside-down when a mysterious fat man walks into her club and a siren goes off, and Frankie wakes up the next morning as a man
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This lurid but ultimately unfulfilling exploration of gender identity paradoxically uses a single character to underscore the differences between men and women. After passing out drunk one night while dancing topless, Frankie de Leon awakens the next morning possessed by a man's personality. Shrugging this off as a manifestation of the alcoholism that has been consuming Frankie's life, boyfriend Terry Connor humors the confused stripper by helping him/her piece together the events of the last day. Frankie's change might involve some paranormal event that transposed her personality with that of a stripjoint patron who passed out at the same time. The author intimates the more plausible explanation of a personality disorder. Terry's patience with Frankie soon erodes. Frankie leaves, only to return after privately resolving to come to grips with his/her "new" body and to make Terry pay by exploiting his growing obsession with the stranger who used to be his lover. Blumlein ( The Brains of Rats ) is often perceptive regarding the condition of a male mind in a female body in a man's world, but he shows inadequate sensitivity to the plight of his hero/heroine and women in general.
