About the Book
After having spent nearly her entire adult life dating women (and liking it), Elena Azzoni felt pretty secure in her sexual orientation: she’d even just been crowned Miss Lez 2007. Not only was she out of the closet, she was a lesbian beauty queen. Then, one day in yoga class, a male teacher moved in close to adjust her pose … and she suddenly found herself intensely—bafflingly—attracted to him. It took Azzoni a while to figure out what those feelings meant; reluctant to turn her life upside down, it took her even longer to accept it. But eventually she initiated a flirtation with the yoga teacher—and after that, there was no going back.
A Year Straight chronicles the hilariously disastrous year following Azzoni’s abrupt dive into the world of dating men. Old enough to drink and keep her own hours, but as clueless as an adolescent when it comes to deciphering men’s words and actions (she has no idea what a guy means when he asks if she want to get “horizontal”), Azzoni is uniquely positioned to find herself in some ridiculously absurd scenarios. Often cringeworthy and occasionally unbelievable, A Year Straight is a wildly entertaining look at one woman’s experiences dating a new sex—the opposite sex.
