Synopsis: We have earned a certain place in each other’s lives, and in the best of times we can rest on what we have made together.

Lesbian Ex-Lovers: The Really Long-Term Relationships examines the need for the development of better understanding and more critical analysis of lesbian ex-lover relationships. This eye-opening look into the minds and hearts of women offers personal insight into the possibilities for and potential pitfalls of lesbian ex-lover relations. This book contains personal stories, fictional accounts, poetry, and theoretical analyses of the frequency and significance of ex-lovers at different stages in a relationship.

Topics of interest in Lesbian Ex-Lovers include:

  • the roles ex-lovers play in our lives
  • ex-lovers as contexts for change and development
  • how we continue to be influenced by ex-lovers
  • letting go and moving on
  • ex-lovers as current friends and family
  • themes of betrayal and loss of faith
  • reconstructing friendships and community
  • the mystique of the ex-lover
  • friend/family connections among lesbian ex-lovers
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.

Lesbian Ex-Lovers offers advice, anecdotes, and interpretations from such authors, poetesses, and artists as:
  • Michelle Gibson, PhD educator and editor of Femme/Butch: New Considerations of the Way We Want to Go who says goodbye to her lover in a sad, passionate elegy
  • Marny Hall Psychotherapist, editor of the anthology Sexualities, and author of several books, including The Lavender Couch: A Consumer’s Guide to Psychotherapy for Lesbians and Gay Men who muses on the unique bonding between lesbians and their ex-lovers, lending a mystique that surrounds the lesbian lifestyle
  • Alison Bechdel creator of the comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For who presents a humorous comic strip thanking her former lovers for teaching her about herself
  • Jane Futcher newspaper reporter and author of three novels who uses a chapter in her novel to illustrate the tensions that can occur when ex-lovers choose to remain friends, especially when those bonds provoke jealousy in both current and ex-lovers
  • Renny Christopher educator and award-winning poetess who expresses her love, loss, and regret in three poems about her ex-lover
  • and much more!

Review: "Very Interesting And Compelling...The stories and poems speak to great resilience, friendship, and strength among women while also addressing why some relationships should not, and cannot be mended."

"A Fascinating Set Of Personal Documents. ... Provides innovative and creative ways of understanding what happens to some lesbians' romantic relationships after they end. The contributions are funny, poignant, sad, angry, and thoughtful pieces that share intimate and personal moments in these women's lives. You come away realizing how complex and emotional our relationships can be and how important friendship is in our daily lives."
