Transvestites Fiction.
Author: Knowles, Sarah,
Description: "What does a dominant and aggressive woman with a good executive job do when she decides that she is fed up with her spineless, boring and out of work husband? In Sally's case she deliberately and ruthlessly sets about to transform her husband, John, into her sister, Jenny - a sister she has always craved. Of course John does not take easily to being forced to wear frilly satin aprons and being bought silky nightdresses and negligees for his birthday, but Sally is strong and determined and the breadwinner and John is weak and easily bullied. So begins the total and relentless feminisation of John into Jenny, and not until he has become her suprisingly attractive and elegant, not to mention submissive, sister is Sally finally satisfied. As for John - well, wearing skirts has it's compensations"--Back cover.
