Same-Sexy Marriage: A Novella in Poems (A Midsummer Night's Press, April 2018)
Available now!
Julie Marie Wade’s heart-tearing, heart-baring “Same-Sexy Marriage” left me stunned with open-mouth gratitude. In this moving book a mother invents a heterosexual daughter to tell the neighbors about, so she can pretend to have a life she loves. But the wise speaker in this book gives her heart to a woman, so she can invent a real life full of love. (“Anything less would be a waste of time.”) Wade knows that the truth is the only story worth telling, and—thankfully for all of us—she tells it.
