Review quote

"Hamilton's writing is propulsive, and the story moves at an effortless pace as it explores a multitude of sexualities and identities, as well as the difficulties and even explosive outcomes of navigating them while remaining faithful to and honest with one's partner or partners." --Publishers Weekly "Weekend is both a sexy romp and tender exploration of vulnerability." --Zoe Whittall, author of The Best Kind of People "In Weekend, Jane Eaton Hamilton gives us an astonishingly tender queer exploration of gender, race, class, ability, love, family, sexuality, sex, and kink that is also a damn fine story. Captivating, sexy, heartbreaking." --Sassafras Lowrey, author of Lost Boi "Stunningly beautiful ... This is a book I have been waiting to read. It is a book I enjoyed every single minute of reading. It is a book I want to share with everyone. I commend Weekend. This is a story of how we live our queer lesbian lives now. Do not miss it." --Curve
