My second book is out: Lesbian Crushes at School: A Diary on Growing Up Gay in the Eighties (1983-1989).

This is the 'prequel' to Lesbian Crushes and Bulimia: A Diary on How I Acquired my Eating Disorder (1989-1990).

BOOK DESCRIPTION

In 1983 thirteen-year-old Natasha is in love with her French teacher, Miss Williams. When Natasha is cruelly banished from Miss Williams's class forever, the love develops into obsession ... stalking ... unhealthy behaviour ... and painfully misguided cries for attention.

This uncomfortable yet light-hearted memoir in diary form is primarily a record of obsession.

Natasha is a love-sick lesbian teenager in an all-girls school in the eighties, juggling her Latin homework, Bible study, a crush on Elaine Paige, and her suppressed sexuality. How can she make sense of it all?

But more importantly ... tormented by unrequited love ... how can Natasha make Miss Williams love her back? Take a sneaky peek inside ...

Natasha Holme (natashaholme) I asked my local bookshop if they would be interested in stocking my paperbacks. And they said YES.

Atlanta (lantadonn) | 6 comments Is there any way I could get a free print copy of this book and review it? I'm really interested, but I just can't get into mobile copies of books!

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

In 1990 twenty-year-old Natasha finds herself in France on her university year abroad. She is ANGRY. Everyone should be a lesbian, or she will punish them for their oversight (particularly her bemused fellow English assistant friend, Ange).

The frites and the pâtisseries are not helping Natasha recover from her bulimia. And the door-to-door Mormon missionaries are bedevilling her reluctant search for God.

Natasha does not respond well to the frosty demands of the headmaster of the school where she is teaching.

She passes her time befriending a pair of thieving drop-outs on the run from the law, skinning up grilled banana skins, dodging flashers, and hitch-hiking around Europe.
