After having spent nearly her entire adult life dating women (and liking it), Elena Azzoni felt pretty secure in her sexual orientation: she’d even just been crowned Miss Lez 2007. Then, one day in yoga class, a male teacher moved in close to adjust her pose . . . and she suddenly found herself intensely bafflingly attracted to him. Eventually she initiated a flirtation with him; after that, there was no going back. A Year Straight is a chronicle of the hilariously disastrous year following Azzoni’s abrupt dive into the world of dating men: old enough to drink and keep her own hours, but as clueless as an adolescent when it comes to deciphering men’s words and actions, Azzoni is uniquely positioned to find herself in some ridiculously absurd scenarios. Often cringe-worthy and occasionally unbelievable, A Year Straight is a wildly entertaining look at one woman’s experiences dating a new sex the opposite sex.

Review:

"Frank, funny and revealing of relations between—and among—the sexes."
Kirkus

"A Year Straight is a hilarious, engrossing page-turner that presents a whole new twist on the Manhattan dating scene."
— Katie Crouch, author, Girls in Trucks

"Azzoni leaves no genitalia unturned in her heroic quest for love, and it's a credit to her winning writing that she makes such a unique subject feel so relatable."
— Tami Sagher, writer, How I Met Your Mother, 30 Rock, and Bored to Death

"Elena Azzoni's memoir is a delightful read—thoughtful and surprising, Azzoni seals the deal with her bona fide and unassuming wit"
— Alix Olson, writer/Performer

"Elena's moments of awkwardness, exhilaration, self-doubt, and heartbreak are told with engaging wit and candor, but it is her forthrightness about the complex issues of gender and sexuality that makes this book so original."
— Lisa Diamond, author, Sexual Fluidity
