10 thoughts on “Becoming Drusilla One Life Two Friends Three Genders

  1. Peregrine Peregrine says:

    It's Richard the author who goes through the biggest transition in this book Dru Marland develops into the woman she has always been It's Richard who works through the larger changes in perception and understanding including finally knowing that his friend Drew was always Dru just not as visible Dru Marland meets challenges of her own including gender confirmation surgery and a lawsuit against a former employer with the uncomplicated naturalness of her own self Told by Richard Beard in an uncomplicated style this story is full of observation British self deprecation compassion and admiration


  2. Tess Tess says:

    This is a book about two friends walking across Wales as they have done for many yearsInterwoven into this is the author's Richard’s struggle with his own understanding of his friend’s gender change Dru is fine with it – seeming to sail through the walk with the sense of freedom that someone who has at last found themselves hasRichard’s problem is that on the surface gender is simple but start trying to define it and it becomes indistinct – almost illusory complex and contradictory Dru knows what she feels and has come to terms with the contradictions and the failure of rationality to explain it – Richard is a willing learner but still struggling Through his narrative Richard walks through Wales with Dru while diverting off to explore and dig at his inner thoughts and relate the research he’s done and the people he’s interviewedIt is a journey about understanding and is warm dryly observant laugh out loud funny – and the book says an awful lot about what it means to be human Whatever gender you happen to be Just don’t take it for grantedThis is the book to give to friends relatives whoever who wants to know about what being transgender means It’s not everyone’s story nor does it pretend to be but it tells a story about Dru one person trying to find the right path to follow through their lifeAnd it’s a good read about two friends walking through WalesOh and by the way in response to some of the condescending reviews on this book I have a Masters in Gender Sexuality and Culture It doesn't mean I have all the answers uite the contrary gender is about uestions than answers about lived experience rather than universal facts Many of Richard's internal debates turn on those uestions


  3. Deborah Deborah says:

    Some of the reviews of this book seem pretty harsh and politically correct and yes I know it's not politically correct to believe in political correctness It's been a while since I read this book; however I recall and value the honesty and integrity which sustain the various journeys both real and metaphorical that are described in the narrative as well as the journey of reading it and which illuminate the friendship between Richard and Dru I thoroughly recommend it


  4. Karen Karen says:

    Author Richard Beard goes on a walking trip through Wales with his old friend Dru in an effort to come to terms with the fact that she is no longer the man he knewIt's a sympathetic down to earth look at not just what it means to be transsexual but what it means to be the friend of someone who is transsexual


  5. Liza Liza says:

    I had to stop reading this book Richard's casual gender policing was getting right on my tits I understand that that was presumably how he responded at the time and I hope that his attitude towards Dru's transition became less problematic but I struggled not to get really cross with him whilst reading it I think this book might be really useful for people who are new to trans issues or who know someone who has recently come out to them as transgender I get that when you might be unfamiliar with these issues and their attendant etiuettes it's useful to be given a sympathetic framework in which to explore your feelings rather than be told 'no that feeling is wrong this is how you are meant to be responding' which this book might help facilitate As a person who is no expert but has familiarity with trans issues and identifies as trans I did not find Richard's reaction to Dru's transition helpful


  6. Malcolm Logscribe Malcolm Logscribe says:

    It may be helpful to see a well intentioned but ignorant person work through his transphobia If you have found yourself feeling less understanding and accepting of trans folk than you would prefer and if you don't know how to change that and become a person you like this book is for you It gets a star for serving that purpose I can't give it any though because if that isn't you this book is pretty much worthless Lots and lots of the author's bigotry in excruciating detail The writing's OK and when he's just talking about Drusilla instead of talking about his own discomfort or disgust she seems compelling as a character I would have been a lot interested in a book about Drusilla's interests and personality with the trans stuff as background rather than the other way around Trans status is interesting but not exciting while the ability to name every plant and bird one comes across is thrilling to me and makes me want to read the whole book in one go


  7. James Giddings James Giddings says:

    This is the story of a walking tour through Wales a sort of pilgrimage to St David's by two people Richard and Dru who have known and liked each other for a long time who now have to come to terms with the fact that one of them has made the transition from living as a male to being a woman Richard uses his considerable skill as a writer to understand who his old friend friend is and has been and to help her appear as she intends to appear as herself to him and to the other people they meet on the journey Into the fabric of the story of the walking tour Richard injects flashbacks into the story in just the right places to help us all understand and feel what this transition means and what the larger societal move toward acceptance of a broad understanding of gender portends for all of us


  8. Ni Ni says:

    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
