About the Author
Harrie Farrow is a Life Coach for Bisexuals at Navigating the BiWays. After an idyllic childhood growing up in the Virgin Islands, her 20's were filled with adventure, travel, and education. She graduated summa cum laude from San Francisco State with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Human Sexual Studies. A brief career in freelance writing was followed with a move to the Ozarks, where she opened and operated a fine dining restaurant, raised a son, designed a beautiful house, wrote a novel, nearly finished another novel, and did more traveling. After the breakup of a 35 year long relationship, losing her restaurant and home, gaining a grandson, and a new romance, she became an investigative reporter. Four slashed tires on her car convinced her to quit that line of work and instead focus on finally publishing "Love, Sex, and Understanding the Universe." In the process of promoting the novel, she found herself suddenly a bisexual activist, with a bisexual blog. Seeing a huge need for someone who can help bisexuals, and those who love them, she started Navigating the Biways. She is also working on completing her novel, "The Man with the Camera: Bonita verses Ivan Rasta Man and the Monkey Go Round."

This book is the complete opposite of that and is a must read for everyone interested in what a bi person goes through when dealing with their feelings, insecurities and the scariest thing of all, coming out.
The story is about Jim, starts when he is in high school, follows him through college and his move to San Francisco. Throughout he is confronted with his feelings of being attracted to both sexes, his being torn between coming out and his fear of what people will think and how they will react, and the effect this has on his relationships with both men and women. Because it takes place in the late 70s the reader knows the spectre of AIDS is just around the corner, so Jim's cruising the bars and one night stands highlight the era without becoming the story but adds to it without words.
It's a powerful story, more so because I could identify with Jim and actually told the author she wrote my biography. It's an important story because we were all Jims at one time, especially if you came out in the 70s and 80s.
And delightfully provocative at times!
