Read full description of the books:

Uspješnica o čuvenom "slučaju blizanaca" koji je postao kriterij u raspravama o rodnom identitetu i ulozi prirode i odgoja u njegovom formiranju.

Godine 1967., nakon što je jedan od blizanaca pretrpio ozljede pri nestručnom obrezivanju, njegova obitelj je pristala da ga se podvrgne radikalnom liječenju: da mu se operativnim zahvatom promijeni spol. Slučaj će postati jedan od najslavnijih u modernoj medicini - a rezultirat će potpunim neuspjehom. Knjiga Kako ga je priroda stvorila neobična je priča o Davidu Reimeru, koji je, kada je konačno saznao svoju povijest bolesti, odlučio živjeti kao muškarac. To je sablasna priča o liječničkoj aroganciji, ali prije svega je to ljudska drama jednog čovjeka - i jedne obitelji - koji su zadivljujuće opstali usprkos svim prognozama.

Knjiga je uspjela na više razina - kao napeta priča o djetetu i njegovoj obitelji, ali i pomno dokumentirano istraživanje kako je jedna neprovjerena teorija bila prihvaćena kao standard liječenja. Washington Post Book World

David Reimer je 2000. godine, uoči izlaska knjige Kako ga je priroda stvorila , rekao novinaru CBC-a: "Imam troje sjajne djece. Imam predivnu suprugu. Imam dom." Međutim, život je krenuo drugim smjerom. David je ostao bez posla, razveo se od žene. Njegova majka je rekla da još uvijek oplakuje smrt sina blizanca koji je počinio samoubojstvo. David Reimer se ubio 4. svibnja 2004. godine. Imao je 38 godina.

John Colapinto rođen je u Torontu, ali živi u New Yorku sa ženom i sinom. Piše članke za časopise Esquire, Vanity Fair, New Yorker i Rolling Stone , gdje je objavio članak o dječaku kojega su podizali kao djevojčicu, o tzv. "slučaju blizanaca". Za članak je dobio National Magazine Award, a kasnije ga razradio u knjigu "Kako ga je priroda stvorila". Njegov odličan triler "Bilješka o piscu" (AGM, 2004.) donio mu je neku vrst kultnog statusa.

Ebook Kako ga je priroda stvorila: dječak kojega su odgajali kao djevojčicu read Online! An award-winning journalist, author and novelist and is currently a staff writer at The New Yorker.

Prior to working at The New Yorker, Colapinto wrote for Vanity Fair, New York magazine and The New York Times Magazine, and in 1995 he became a contributing editor at Rolling Stone,[1] where he published feature stories on a variety of subjects ranging from AIDS, to kids and guns, to heroin in the music business, to Penthouse magazine creator, Bob Guccione (his Guccione story was a finalist for the ASME award in profile writing in 2004). In 1998, he published a 20,000 word feature story in Rolling Stone titled The True Story of John/Joan, an account of David Reimer, who had undergone a sex change in infancy—a medical experiment long heralded as a success, but which was, in fact, a failure. The story, which detailed not only Reimer's tortured life, but the medical scandal surrounding its cover-up, won the ASME Award for reporting and in 2000, Colapinto published a book-length account of the case, As Nature Made Him: The Boy Who Was Raised As A Girl. The book was a New York Times bestseller and the film rights were bought by Peter Jackson, the director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Colapinto also wrote a novel, About the Author, a tale of literary envy and theft. It was published in August 2001 and was a number 6 pick on the Booksense 76 list of best novels of the season; it was a nominee for the IMPAC literary award and for a number of years was under option by Dreamworks, where playwright Patrick Marber (Closer and Howard Katz) wrote a screen adaptation. The film rights to the novel have since been acquired by producer Scott Rudin.

As a writer for The New Yorker, Colapinto has written about subjects as diverse as medicinal leeches; Sotheby's auctioneer Tobias Meyer; fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld and Rick Owens; the linguistic oddities of the Pirahã people (an Amazonian tribe); and Paul McCartney. His piece on the Piraha was anthologized in "The Best American Science and Nature Writing" (2008); his New Yorker story about loss prevention (anti-theft in stores) was included in "The Best American Crime Reporting" (2009);[2] and his New Yorker profile of neuroscientist V.S. Ramachandran was selected by Freeman Dyson for inclusion in "The Best American Science and Nature Writing" (2010).

John Colapinto lives on New York City's Upper East Side. He is married to fashion illustrator and artist, Donna Mehalko, and they have one son.
