Críticas:

"BECOMING WESTERLY is much more than a book about a celebrated surfer who becomes a woman -- in this case, a dude who becomes a diva. Brisick presents us with a case study of narcissism, of the pathology of celebrity, and a detailed look at the complex world of competitive surfing. It is a funny and painful book, too, and one I greatly enjoyed. - Paul Theroux "What a wild and wonderful and fascinating journey our lives can be! BECOMING WESTERLY stands as beautiful evidence of this -- gorgeous proof of the ever-unfolding transformations many of us undergo -- and Jamie Brisick brings these changes to vivid and heart-rending life. A sometimes-brutal book, every page is marked with care, affection, friendship, and pure honesty." - William Lychack "Brisick s BECOMING WESTERLY is as compelling and magnificent as Westerly Windina herself -- so charming and formidable, lonely and controlling, fierce and coquettish, and, like Marilyn Monroe, the woman with whom she most identifies, always far larger than life. In his intimate and amazing portrait of this formerly renowned male Australian surf champion now turned female entertainer, Brisick has undertaken a remarkable and riveting investigation of human identity in all of its complexities." - Richard McCann "What happens after the endless summer? BECOMING WESTERLY is what happens. Jamie Brisick has given all readers one shaggy, tasty gift: not only the history of surfing, as seen from inside that raging, curling wave (quite an accomplishment in itself) but the more intimate struggle that comes from being alone with your aloneness. The transformation of Peter Drouyn -- troubled narcissist, influential surfing genius -- into wannabe starlet Westerly Windina is every bit as absorbing as it is frustrating, as charming as it is essential." - Charles Bock More praise from James Frey, Jim Krusoe, Andrew Solomon, Peter Maguire, Deanne Stillman, Matt Warshaw, and Chas Smith at outpost19.com/BeomcingWesterfly"

He pioneered an aggressive approach called power surfing, introduced the man-on-man competition format, and charged giant waves in Hawaii.

For nearly the past decade, Peter has been living as a woman, Westerly Windina, a complex, aspiring entertainer. Beginning with her 2012 trip to Bangkok for gender reassignment surgery, BECOMING WESTERLY traces Peter Drouyn s odyssey from teenage Queensland hopeful to 1960s surf champion to embittered has-been who struggles to rise again as the glamorous, sixty-four-year-old Westerly Surf journalist Jamie Brisick provides an intimate exploration of global surf culture a nuanced portrait of Peter/Westerly and the world that shaped her evolving identity.
