This collection of amateur photographs, found at a New York flea market in 2004, features men dressed as women. The photos belonged to a certain Susanna who, between 1959 and 1968, opened her door to all those who, like her, secretly cross-dressed. For a few days, they could come and live freely as women on her Catskill estate: Casa Susanna.
Casa Susanna, L’histoire du premier réseau transgenre américain, 1959–1968
was written by Isabelle Bonnet and Sophie Hackett, and published in French by Éditions Textuel in an edition of 3,000 copies. The soft cover has 480 pages with 250 photographs and measures 18×25,5 cm. There will also be an English edition by Thames & Hudson.
