The Secrets of My Life
In this remarkable memoir-written during her pivotal first years of becoming her authentic self-Caitlyn Jenner reflects on her past as she looks to her future.

"Imagine denying your core and soul. Then add to it the most impossible expectations that people have for you because you are the personification of The American Male Athlete."

Bruce Jenner, the celebrated Olympic icon and later the patriarch of one of the most famous families in the world, seemed to be living a dream life of success, fame, and prosperity. But the all-American image and million-dollar smile belied a lifelong struggle with gender dysphoria, and it wasn't until the sensational Diane Sawyer interview that the public mask of Bruce Jenner was finally retired, and through the memorable Vanity Fair piece by Buzz Bissinger, that Caitlyn Jenner was introduced to the world and set free to exist on her own terms. Since then, Caitlyn has undertaken an arduous emotional and physical odyssey to achieve the completeness she always felt was missing.

In THE SECRETS OF MY LIFE, Caitlyn reflects on the inner conflict she experienced growing up in an era of rigidly defined gender identities, and the cruel irony of being hailed by an entire nation as the ultimate symbol of manhood. She recounts her Olympic triumph, her rise to fame, and relates how her sense of frustration and shame grew with the passing years and the lengths to which she had to go to conceal her true self. Caitlyn in turn uncovers the toll that these personal struggles had on her three marriages and, subsequently, the relationships with her children. She also talks candidly about her life in the public eye as a member of the Kardashian clan, what led to her decision to become Caitlyn, and how she, her family, the transgender community, and the rest of the world has since embraced her new life.

Filled with incredibly personal and moving stories of struggle and victory, of anxiety and fear, and, finally, of surrender and acceptance, THE SECRETS OF MY LIFE reveals the real Caitlyn Jenner by tracing her long and eventful journey to becoming herself.

Mein großes Geheimnis: Gefangen im falschen Körper (German Edition)
In den Augen der amerikanischen Öffentlichkeit galt Bruce Jenner lange Jahre als das Idealbild des Mannes: Der erfolgreiche Zehnkämpfer war groß, kräftig und maskulin. Genau das richtige Pin-Up für die Titelseiten von Magazinen wie Playgirl. In den Siebzigerjahren stellte er Weltrekorde auf, und bei den Olympischen Spielen 1976 gewann er für die USA im Zehnkampf eine Goldmedaille. Was jedoch niemand wusste: Jenner selbst fühlte sich nicht als Mann – sein Körper passte nicht zu seiner Selbstwahrnehmung.

Dieser Konflikt prägte sein ganzes Leben. Hinter verschlossenen Türen dachte Jenner schon kurz nach dem Ende seiner Sportlerkarriere über eine Geschlechtsangleichung nach, begann mit der Einnahme von Hormonen, versuchte immer wieder mit sich ins Reine zu kommen. Diese innere Zerrissenheit belastete seine drei Ehen und auch die Beziehungen zu seinen Kindern – bis er 2015, mit 65 Jahren, den Schritt an die Öffentlichkeit wagte und erklärte, endgültig die Transition zur Frau begonnen zu haben. Es war die Geburt von Caitlyn Marie Jenner, die schon so lange hinter Bruce verborgen gewesen war.

Inzwischen war Jenner durch die Ehe mit der Exfrau von Robert Kardashian zu einem Teil des legendären amerikanischen VIP-Clans geworden und dem amerikanischen Publikum durch die Reality-TV-Show Keeping Up With The Kardashians gut bekannt. Entsprechend groß war das Interesse der Medien an ihrer Transition – einem Thema, das in den letzten Jahren ohnehin immer mehr in den Fokus der Öffentlichkeit gerückt ist.

Warmherzig und mit viel Humor schreibt sich Caitlyn von der Seele, was sie auf dem langen Weg zu sich selbst erlebt hat. Ein bewegendes Plädoyer für mehr Akzeptanz der Transgender-Community - und ein mutiges Bekenntnis zur Auseinandersetzung mit dem eigenen Ich.
