  • ex-lovers as current friends and family

"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.
