Reviews

A wonderfully sympathetic account of how and, possibly, why Drew became Dru * Daily Mail *
A gentle, wise and touching book, full of warmth, humour, friendship and humanity * Literary Review *
A brave and intelligent book * Daily Telegraph *
This beautifully-written and thoroughly well-researched book is Beard's searingly honest attempt to understand what his friend had gone through ... It is deliciously un-PC, unpreachy, refreshingly free of sentimentality, and, at times, drily comic... touching and life affirming. It left me marvelling about human nature. There aren't many of those kinds of books about -- Dermond Moore * Irish Post *
This very personal story of how the friendship between two men had to be completely re-evaluated when one of them had a sex change is written in an honest and deeply thoughtful way and is totally devoid of any sensationalism or prurience * reFresh magazine *
