Hall uses anecdotal and personal accounts of breakups, distancing and other lesser breakups, revitalizations, and splits, all to shed some measure of light and hope on the slippery slopes of relationships. Her central theme is that lesbians must reexamine the forever-after notion of romantic love and reinvent the way they tell tales of personal interactions.

This is my favorite book about dating, not to be confused with my favorite book about marriage, which is Lesbian Couples by Clunis and Green. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062514318, Paperback)

In The Lesbian Love Companion, Marny Hall, Ph.D., a psychotherapist with twenty years' experience counseling lesbian couples, explores and celebrates lesbian relationships in all their complexity - and humor. Based on the idea that the key to healthy relationships lies in our ability to keep refining the story of our relationships, it presents the perfect blend of advice and inspiration for every lesbian looking for love. Interspersing real-life examples from Hall's practice, sound advice, and laugh-out-loud observations, The Lesbian Love Companion takes a completely fresh and honest approach to the unique relationship issues near and dear to every lesbian's heart.

"Witty, perceptive, and wise"

- Karla Jay, editor of Dyke Life and Lesbian Erotics

" A delightfully practical and funny guidebook to exploring life after love . No coy language and no judgmental presumptions help us say yes to the relationships we want. When you go shopping for the next commitment ceremony, The Lesbian Love Companion is the perfect gift"

- Jewelle Gomez, author of The Gilda Stories

A wonderful book helping lesbians define our relationships on our terms--making a successful breakup as worthwhile as our commitments."

- Suzanne Westenhoefer, lesbian comedienne

"With dozens of real-life examples, [this] highly creative guide to everyday relationship pitfalls is a veritable Kama Sutra of emotional possibility."

- Alison Bechdel, creator of Dykes to Watch Out For

"[A] lively, smart, funny, and fun-to-read book that challenges our fairy tale notions that we will find one Ms. Right and settle down forever in undisturbed bliss. Hall...offers wise advice about how to keep one's sanity through the ins-and-outs of all these discombobulating and destabilizing experiences."

- Lillian Faderman, author of Odd Girls and Twilight Loversand Surpassing the Love of Men
