Lucy Fry's story opens with the heady and impassioned affair she embarked on during her wife's pregnancy. It is a relationship that appears to be unstoppable, perhaps even addictive, despite guilt and self-questioning.

With intense and unflinching honesty, she takes her readers on a compelling journey from childhood trauma to addiction then sobriety, infidelity to polyamory and, perhaps most intensely of all, from her fear around being a parent to her exquisite joy at having a son.

L and B's love for their new baby, `The Boy', changes the dynamic once again. They fumble through early parenthood, in a way that many will recognise, while at the same time trying to fathom and fashion a unique journey of their own

Review quote

'An important voice, beautifully written.'-Evie Wyld; 'Hot, warm, raw and intense -a fully achieved work of memoir, and funny in the way that only the truthful can be.' Zoe Williams; 'A beautiful, searing and whip-smart account of love of all kinds. In offering such a vivid and honest reflection on her own experiences, Fry invites us all to reflect on the ways in which love and loss-of-love profoundly shape our lives. Reminiscent of Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts, reading this book will change the way you think-and feel-about love.'Meg-John Barker, author of Rewriting the Rules and Queer: A Graphic History; 'This is a deeply moving and honest account of love and life that I couldn't put down. It is a stunning piece of writing-full of courage, heart, pain and beauty. The experience of reading it is one of being profoundly trusted with someone's innermost hopes and desires. It makes you feel so grateful that someone can articulate your own inner thoughts and complicated feelings so perfectly.' Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, playwright and screenwriter
