Lesbian Ex-Lovers examines the need for the development of better understanding and more critical analysis of lesbian ex-lover relationships. This eye-opening look into the minds and hearts of women offers personal insight into the possibilities for and potential pitfalls of lesbian ex-lover relations. This book contains personal stories, fictional accounts, poetry, and theoretical analyses of the frequency and significance of ex-lovers at different stages in a relationship. Topics of interest in this study include: the roles ex-lovers play in our lives; ex-lovers as contexts for change and development; how we continue to be influenced by ex-lovers; letting go and moving on; ex-lovers as current friends and family; themes of betrayal and loss of faith; reconstructing friendships and community; the mystique of the ex-lover; friend/family connections among lesbian ex-lovers; Lesbian Ex-Lovers is the only book in print that explores how a lesbian's ex-lovers impact her subsequent romances and lifestyle. This special collection adds a new dynamic to the current literature for and about the lesbian community.
