    1. Lili Ilse Elvenes, better known as Lili Elbe, was a Danish transgender woman and one of the first identifiable recipients of sex reassignment surgery Elbe was born Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener and was a successful artist under that name She also presented as Lili sometimes spelled Lily and was publicly introduced as Einar s sister After transitioning, however, she made a legal name change to Lili Ilse Elvenes and stopped painting It is highly likely that Elbe was an intersex person.

    2. There are several factors that together make this book amazing. The writing isn't exceptionally good but combined with the fact that Lili Elbe is the actual author behind her novel-like biography AND the fact that this is also the first real transgender themed work ever, this book becomes immensely interesting to read. What also makes this book interesting is that Elbe lived in a time where it generally wasn't even thought to be possible to change one's gender (even Elbe originally thought other [...]

    3. I decided to pursue more information on the life of Lili Elbe after reading Ebershoff's "The Danish Girl." Hoyer's "Lili" provides a collection of letters and diary entries written by Elbe herself, from the time before her transition and afterwards. Though the names had been changed to preserve anonymity, Lili is still Lili. That much cannot be changed.She writes mainly to her wife, Gerda, as well as to friends. Her writings initially depict her sorrow, her struggle to become Lili, and later her [...]

    4. A good book. It changed the way I look at LGBT, I didn't really feel disgust or indignation toward them, it was more like disbelief caused by ignorance on my part. Now I only have compassion, understanding & sympathy for them.

    5. Sometimes I really hate computers. I wrote a lengthy and thoughtful review and my computer ate it before it got posted. So let me try again.I saw the movie “The Danish Girl” and loved it. But it made me very curious and interested to read the book on which the movie was based. The original book was called “Man Into Woman, The First Sex Change”, and was first published in 1933. As is the usual case in our capitalist universe, an “updated and expanded” version of the book was recently [...]

    6. After watching the film, the Danish Girl, I wanted to find out more about the amazing story of Einar Wegener, a famous Danish landscape painter living in the bohemian Europe of the 1930s who underwent multiple surgeries to become the woman Lili Elbe. As it turns out the movie is not entirely based on facts and I wanted to really understand what happened with Einar, his wife Gerda, and Lili. For something written in the 1930s it is an incredibly easy read, and explicit in the facts surrounding wh [...]

    7. As a transgender woman in 2016. So much of this is still relatable to my life. I have not had any surgery yet but I have been hormonally transitioning for 11 months. Just the hormones which Lili would not have had, without those surgeries, are so freeing.I wish she could see us and smile, and all the progress we have made with her start. She started the race, she created the movement. Eventually one of us will finish the race and we will be fully accepted. She started the society level change, s [...]

    8. Something lost foreverThis brave, infinitely sad story of a gender pioneer, doing what most likely had never been done or imagined and certainly not tried. It is also a tragic story; how different everything could have been had all involved known when to stop. One of those rare, small books you will never forget

    9. 3.5 starsThis is the story of the first sex change featured in the movie, The Danish Girl, and the previous partly fictional novel on which the movie was based. . This book gives us a truer and more intimate picture of the thoughts and emotional state of Einar Wegener while he transitioned into Lili Elbe, and of the constant support of his wife,Gerda Gottlieb, and most relatives and friends before and after his four surgeries in 1930/1931. The husband and wife team were artists, and lived a Bohe [...]

    10. Like a lot of people I saw The Danish Girl and loved it, so I went looking for what really happened and found this book. Lili: A Portrait of the First Sex Change was partially written by Lili around the time of her last operation. The rest is taken from Lili's letters to her friends and loved ones, her diary entries, Gerda's diary entries, and small inserts from Niels Hoyer, who edited and put together this book. Sometimes this reads like a novel, and I can't believe how incredible this story is [...]

    11. After seeing the movie, it wasn't until the end of this book that I understood why it was so important for Lili to be able to give birth. She was truly a woman and no longer a man. I was also amazed at the support system she had.It is hard to imagine how difficult this must have been for her. Some questions I'm left with are: Why did the doctor leave on vacation? What happened to the doctors and the clinic, especially with the rise of National Socialism aka NAZI Germany? I would like to find som [...]

    12. The copy I received via inter-library loan arrived from California State University, and was in fragile condition. I felt very honored that they would even send it to me! I was particularly interested to read this first documented account of the transformation of a person into the gender they most closely identify with, because of personal experience within my own family. I have been interested in the study of gender dysphoria since my daughter came out to me as transgendered at age sixteen. I w [...]

    13. Lili is the republishing of Man Into Woman, the memoir of one of the first openly trans women, Lili Elbe. Lili's life story was the inspiration behind The Danish Girl - which completely twisted and disregarded many of her life circumstances - and in my opinion the truth is much more interesting and compelling. While Lili lived in the beginning of the 20th century, what surprised me the most is in how many ways things haven't changed. It is of such vital importance that we listen to the own voice [...]

    14. Honestly a pretty good narrative of the life of Lille Elbe. It’s interesting to see from a modern perspective how people viewed her and even how she viewed herself. For example, Lili wrote some pretty awful/sexist things about herself, showing how much she internalized sexism of the time, as well as believed that she had to follow societal feminine ideals in order to be a “real woman”. It’s fascinating to me to see how those beliefs have changed in how most transgender women view themsel [...]

    15. As beautifully written as The Danish Girl, and wonderful to have read it directly after. I really recommend it.

    16. This is another book I read for school. It was so interesting. I recommend everyone read this if they've seen the movie so they can see how Lili's story was altered.

    17. This really is a fascinating book, especially when you consider the times (1920's and 30's) . I agree with the preface that says this book is great for people going through a change like Lili went through or for people who know people going through this change.

    18. I saw the movie The Danish Girl which inspired me to read Portrait of the First Sex Change. EXCELLENT STORY! So sad for Lili, but a heart warming story.

    19. Lili is a fascinating look at the one of the earliest efforts to successfully complete male to female transgender surgery. While not especially well written the first person person perspective is compelling and so relevant to the issues in today's news, even though the events occurred in 1930-31. Lily and Andreas were two very distinct individuals and people who related well to one of them didn't always reciprocate that friendship to the other. As Lili and Andreas coexist, it is amazing how many [...]

    20. The story of Lili Elbe is an eye opener. And her story is during the early 1900's, so the technology and the way of life was quite different back then. It is much easier for a hermaphrodite in todays world to cope with their illness. To recognize it, to see it, and to know the actions needed to make that person happy. Back then, this was unheard of. So, Lili had to live a lot in secrecy. My heart went out for her and her wife, who traveled so much, and went through so much with Lili while Lili w [...]

    21. Technically speaking it was not a sex change since Lili apparently was born an intersexual person, but in any case the story of her adult life (the book tells nothing about her childhood and adolescence) is a tale of stubbornness and resilience. It is amazing how she managed, surrounded by a net of friends and parents, who supported her all the way.What I have not liked at all is her image of femininity as weakness, dependence on men and shyness. I suppose it was the mental idea she had of being [...]

    22. Out of sight, yet her heart peers throughI saw the movie first, and enjoyed it. But having read Lillis words and the enormous physical pain she endured, was far better evidence of the depth of her transformation. An extraordinary woman set free by a surgeon and her other self, to live what remained of her life. Her own words stirred me. Such courage.

    23. This was a really, really interesting book. I know so little about the history of transgender people. This wasn't brilliantly written or anything, but it didn't need to be. I'm very glad I read it.Read as the 'Read a book by or about a person that identifies as transgender' part of Book Riot's 'Read Harder' Challenge 2016.

    24. I read this book after seeing the movie "The Danish Girl" to get more of the real background on Lili Elbe. I did not read the book of the same name. This book is fascinating and heartbreaking, with Lily and Andreas discussing deeply what must go on in the mind of any person going through these changes, regardless of the decade and medical progress which has taken place since then. What torment!

    25. LiliA bit difficult to read due to the writing rather than the story. Felt there was much left out and only really got going towards end of the novel. Very informative at times and showed that education can overcome prejudices.

    26. Wonderful account of triuAs always the movie "The Danish Girl", although wonderful, did not do Lol I'd life justice. Her life was far more fascinating and intricate than the movie could ever depict.

    27. Probably shouldn't put "read" because I actually couldn't finish it. The narrative was hard to follow & just not all that interesting. Maybe I'll pick it up again in the future because I see many don't agree with such a low rating. Darn. Such high hopes!

    28. very interesting story with many insites into the Life of Andreas/Lili. The writing itself is lovely. Lili really has a way with words. The way the book is set up can be confusing at times. There were times I wasn't sure who the writer was. deformed worth the read.

    29. After seeing The Danish Girl, I wanted to know more about Lili and came across this book. It answered many of the questions that I had. Lili wanted so much to be a woman in every sense of the word. This led to her unfortunate final operation from which she died.

    30. AstoundingA moving portrait of a brave woman. Thank you Lili Elbe, for paving the way for all those after you.
