Male to female transition is not so unusual
on 29 June 2015
Richard Beard's transition from embarrassed skeptic to accepting friend is dwarfed by Dru's life changes which include living as a woman among seamen and undergoing gender reassignment surgery in Thailand. I get a flavour of Drusilla's engineering skills her acceptance of male and female traits and the joy she feels when people acknowledge her as a woman. The writing is capable, mainly dialogue and narrative; most of the action happens elsewhere. The effect is second hand, clumsily intrusive at its worst. After a long walk in Wales, Richard concludes that Dru is genuine. Adds little to the pruritic red top sensationalism.
