Pressestimmen"Less a document of a sex-change than one of family change, "What Becomes You" illustrates the roles and expectations we have not only for men and women, but for parents and children. Although Raz and Link's story initially appears unusual in its particulars, the result tells a familiar tale: that to become yourself requires sacrifice, yet love--especially that of family--will make you whole."--Sharon McGill, "Indiana Review
