At the turn of the 19th century, James Miranda Barry enrolled as a medical student in Edinburgh, the start of a glorious career as a military surgeon, famed as a physician, duellist and social figure. But James Miranda Barry was also a woman, who passed as a man for over 50 years.
"Superbly imagined and flamboyantly written." - Beryl Bainbridge
