I know a lot of the people who contributed to this, so I'm biased, but I thought this was an excellent collection of interesting essays about bisexuality in Britain. It was very useful for standing up to the idea that you have to do certain things to be a 'proper' bisexual, and was warmly welcoming. It does feel a bit like 'the people at bicon wrote a book about being bisexual', which is a slightly biased view - but they've worked hard to make sure the perspective is as wide as possible, with BME bisexuals, disabled bisexuals, older bisexuals and religious bisexuals amongst many others all talking about their experiences. And they manage to talk about polyamory and the correlation with the bi scene without making it sound compulsory. A helpful read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0996460160, Paperback)

Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britain is the first of its kind: a book written for and by bisexuals in the UK. This accessible collection of interviews, essays, poems and commentary explores topics such as definitions of bisexuality, intersections of bisexuality with other identities, stereotypes and biphobia, being bisexual at work, teenage bisexuality and bisexuality through the years, the media’s approach to bisexual celebrities, and fictional bisexual characters. Filled with raw, honest, first-person accounts as well as comments from leading bisexual activists in the UK, this is the book you’ll buy for your friend who’s just come out to you as bi-curious, or for your parents who think your bisexuality is weird or a phase, or for yourself, because you know you’re bi but you don’t know where to go or what to do about it.
