Product Details


“These pages resound with two main sentiments: ‘If you’re lucky, really lucky, you have one friend in this life who feels like a gift’ and ‘Getting a gay boyfriend enriches life immeasurably.’ This collection of original essays celebrates the fierce bond and special intimacy between straight women and their gay male best friends, as well as the sometimes disheartening realization that the boy you like, likes boys. Many essays soar with strong insights into love, humanity and the nature of friendship. James Lecesne writes a letter to a friend that whimsically deconstructs their 15-year friendship while revealing just how lifesaving it was. Cindy Chupack, on the verge of getting married again, embarks on a bittersweet reunion with her gay ex-husband. And Karen Robinovitz rhapsodizes on the joys of shopping with gay men and why when getting married one should, instead of bridesmaids, opt for ‘bridesgays.’ Contributors also include some familiar writers from the worlds of journalism, film, TV, theater and fiction, like Anna David, David Ebershoff, Michael Musto and Andrew Solomon. Though bookstores aren’t lacking for lesbian and gay anthologies, this one justifies itself by tapping a less-explored subject with fresh voices and fervent first-person accounts.”—Publishers Weekly

 “A charmingly skewered look at best friends.”—Plum Sykes, author of Bergdorf Blondes

“In essays that run the gamut from hilarious to profound, Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys shatters the stereotype of the ‘fag hag’ supplanting it with vivid, heart-felt portraits of the complicated, compassionate women who enrich our lives. It’s a valentine to that rare kind of love, one free from the maddening trap of desire, and proof that sisterhood ain’t just for girls.”—Doug Wright, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Grey Gardens and I Am My Own Wife
