Many a beautiful and gentle dyke-heart has been broken by the here-now-gone-tomorrow straight woman who was unable to commit either to the somewhat marginalized lifestyle, to sexual intimacy without a nature-made penis and, pre-dating the validation of Pink Parenting, to a life most likely without children.
Imagine a park: lovely old trees. Birds chirping away in the branches. Gently sloping lawn. Dappled shade. A lone figure on a picnic blanket, book in hand, tuned into private thoughts. It is you. You are in the park. You are reading, but more importantly, you are elsewhere in your head. The book you are reading is Far From Maddy.
How do YOU find someone who is struggling to find herself?

C.C. Sant-Clair’s genre is GLBT, but we were struck by how vividly she portrayed human emotion and need in her screenplay Far From Maddy. We felt that her story speaks to a larger audience.
C.C. Saint-Clair’s unique blend of plots – richly textured lesbian romance embedded in urban realism – offers a cheap and easy way to slide into another zone, into another’s world – cheaper than a quality DVD – lasts five times as long, even if you don’t hit the PAUSE button once. Gay Relationship Books MS mag Far From Maddy is a must read.”
Far From Maddy is the second book I’ve read from C.C. Saint-Clair, the first having been Morgan in the Mirror. Saint-Clair is, in my opinion, the undisputed mistress of the sensual storyline: in my years of reading an assortment of love scenes made indiscernible by metaphors and repressed sexuality, she holds the lead in her ability to write a love scene that absolutely boils over with emotional and sensual detail.
