Imagine The Graduate as a lesbian version. Now imagine it’s a true story. At twenty-three, fresh out of college, I had an affair with my boss, a woman thirty-four years my senior who had a long-term partner. That affair nearly capsized me as I tried to navigate my personal journey into adulthood and coming to terms with my sexuality. Throw in a lesbian affair with someone three decades older and I found myself bobbing like a cork. The book opens with the older woman dying of cancer, me at her side, and then goes back 9 years to the year of the affair, ending back in the future at her deathbed.
