Piece Comment

Raw, honest, emotional

Having co-produced a piece this year about a woman grieving for her late transgendered husband ("How Are You Who You Are?"), it was fascinating for me to hear this dispatch from the eye of the storm. In my piece we heard from a woman who learned to live with her husband's predilection for cross-dressing. Here one has the advantage of hearing from both parties, a wife and her transgendered husband, now a woman, and the result is a painful but human glimpse into a marriage that couldn't compromise. No fairy tale endings here. It just didn't work.

I could have done without the metronome-like soundtrack pulsing throughout, but on the whole, this is an affecting, honest, and well-mixed human interest piece. Bravo.
