Queen of Whale Cay: The Eccentric Story of "Joe" Carstairs, The Fastest Woman On Water by Kate Summerscale

paperback, 1997

The fascinating story of Marion "Joe" Carstairs - world-champion speedboat racer, oil tycoon, and ruler of a colony in the Bahamas. She was also famous for cross-dressing, entertaining female companions, and her penchant for cigars. Friends with other gender-bending royalty of the time - Marlene Dietrich, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Carstairs' story is one to marvel at.
