Trenton Makes

Abe Kunstler is a man whose very existence is forbidden. His life as a factory worker and World War II veteran is a lie, an invention forged in the heat of a terrible crime. Even Kunstler himself isn’t sure how far he’ll go to keep his secret: that he was born a woman, and his identity belongs to the man he once loved – and killed.
