Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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. (May)

From Booklist

Fueled by feeling that their deep, straight-woman-gay-man friendship "was both unique and universal," editors de la Cruz and Dolby developed this compelling anthology focused on various aspects of such relationships. The pieces in "Gays and Gals" look at group dynamics; those in "Close Confidants," at bedrock one-on-one relations; those in "A Fine Romance," at love and lust, complete with comic, sometimes poignant misunderstandings. "Growing Up, Coming Out" turns to formative and traumatic experiences, and "Father and Daughters, Mothers and Sons" concludes with considerations of the joys and sorrows of lasting ties. Standout essays include Karen Rabinovitz's "Shop Girls," praising style mavens; James Lecesne's "My Best Girlfriend," detailing 14 reasons not to kill yourself (Provincetown, great accessories, etc.); Sarah Kate Levy's "Super Couple"; David Levithan's fond recollection of high-school friends in "The Good Girls"; and Abigail Garner's meditation on her father's coming out to her when she was in kindergarten, "Like Father, Like Daughter."
