In My Lesbian Husband: Landscapes of a Marriage, Barrie Jean Borich outlines a life journey made glorious by falling in love. She relates how, as an unrepentant bohemian, she has managed to make a certain peace with tradition–reshaping it when necessary. Throughout her story, she examines what lies outside America’s moral center of marriage and the family as she illuminates the complex privilege of living within an intimacy unburdened by cultural imperatives. Weaving memory, imagination, public history, and dream, she sketches the literal and figurative landscapes of her lesbian marriage. Using evocative and lyrical prose, Borich shifts forward and back in time, between the changes in her own outlook and society’s expectations, between her defiance and then celebration of being relegated to outsider status. The book reflects the complex swirl of feeling and history that arise when we confront the choices we’ve made through the passages of life, and marvels that our destination can so often turn out to lie in the exact opposite direction to our chosen route.
