Synopsis

"We have earned a certain place in each other's lives, and in the best of times we can rest on what we have made together."



Lesbian Ex-Lovers: The Really Long-Term Relationships examines the need for the development of better understanding and more critical analysis of lesbian ex-lover relationships. This eye-opening look into the minds and hearts of women offers personal insight into the possibilities for and potential pitfalls of lesbian ex-lover relations. This book contains personal stories, fictional accounts, poetry, and theoretical analyses of the frequency and significance of ex-lovers at different stages in a relationship.



Topics of interest in Lesbian Ex-Lovers include:



the roles ex-lovers play in our lives

ex-lovers as contexts for change and development

how we continue to be influenced by ex-lovers

letting go and moving on

ex-lovers as current friends and family

themes of betrayal and loss of faith

reconstructing friendships and community

the mystique of the ex-lover

friend/family connections among lesbian ex-lovers



"Rather than totally scrap a relationship, we recycle it from lover to ex-lover to friend in a relatively short half-life."



Lesbian Ex-Lovers is the only book in print that explores how a lesbian's ex-lovers impact her subsequent romances and lifestyle. This special collection adds a new dynamic to the current literature for and about the lesbian community.



Lesbian Ex-Lovers offers advice, anecdotes, and interpretations from such authors, poetesses, and artists as:



Michelle Gibson, PhD educator and editor of Femme/Butch: New Considerations of the Way We Want to Go who says goodbye to her lover in a sad, passionate elegy

Marny Hall Psychotherapist, editor of the anthology Sexualities, and author of several books, including The Lavender Couch: A Consumer's Guide to Psychotherapy for Lesbians and Gay Men who muses on the unique bonding between lesbians and their ex-lovers, lending a mystique that surrounds the lesbian lifestyle

Alison Bechdel creator of the comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For who presents a humorous comic strip thanking her former lovers for teaching her about herself

Jane Futcher newspaper reporter and author of three novels who uses a chapter in her novel to illustrate the tensions that can occur when ex-lovers choose to remain friends, especially when those bonds provoke jealousy in both current and ex-lovers

Renny Christopher educator and award-winning poetess who expresses her love, loss, and regret in three poems about her ex-lover

and much more!
