Product description

Review

"There are so few books published where the lives of bisexual people are the starting point. But that's not the only reason Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britain is important. It's an interesting and enjoyable book, featuring contributions from a wide range of people from across the British bi community. Addressing the needs and concerns of bi people, this is a must-read for anyone who is attracted to people of more than one gender, and for those who know and love us." --Sue George, author, Women and Bisexuality, blogger, bisexualityandbeyond.com

"At last! British bisexuals come out of the closet with Purple Prose - answering pressing questions about identity, activism, prejudice, relationships and much more. With bisexuality becoming ever more visible in mainstream culture, this book is essential reading for bi people and would-be allies, within the LGBT community and beyond. You need a copy in your life." --Louise Carolin, Deputy editor, DIVA magazine

"I love that this book is written by a range of bisexual authors, so you are getting many different points of view, and therefore you'll always find something in the book that you can relate to or understand, whether you are a bisexual person or someone in your life is bisexual and you want to understand them a bit more." --bookfangirling.blogspot.ca

"Purple Prose is an important book. Its publication may be a watershed moment for the bisexual community in Britain. It reaches out to [bisexuals] and says that you are important, you are an individual and your sexuality is a legitimate reflection of you as a person." --Andy Heath, thebookbag.co.uk

"Purple Prose is . . . like a series of documentaries, each chapter introducing topics like dating and fictional bisexuality to bisexual black and minority people and lesser-spotted attractions, with interview-style passages from notable blogs and activists in the UK community. Verdict: highly recommended." --Louisa Leontiades, louisaleontiades.com
