Description
A literary celebration of one of the most important relationships in a straight girl’s life—her gay best friend

This collection of original essays goes beyond the banter to get to the essence of an intimate relationship like no other. With a foreword by Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin, Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys brings together pieces by National Book Award winner Andrew Solomon (The Noonday Demon), novelist Gigi Levangie Grazer (The Starter Wife), Barneys New York creative director Simon Doonan (Nasty), and many others from all walks of life. In addition to stories of gays and gals bonding over brunch, these essays chronicle love and lust, infatuation and heartbreak, growing up and coming out, and family and children. With genuine warmth, this definitive anthology proves that more durable than diamonds, straight women and gay men are each other’s true best friends.
