Easier Ways to Say I Love You by Lucy Fry

Easier Ways to Say I Love You by Lucy Fry

£8.99Price

A memoir on love, lust and attachment: one woman’s remarkable and candid account of transforming a difficult and uncomfortable love triangle into an honest polyamorous relationship.

 

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 us on a compelling journey from childhood trauma and addiction to sobriety, from infidelity to ethical non-monogamy, and—perhaps most intensely of all—from her fear of parenthood 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.

'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

 

'I absolutely loved this book! An important voice and 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
