Feminist journalist Sarah Mirk has created a love and dating guidebook that gleans real-life knowledge from smart people in a variety of non-traditional relationships. Instead of telling people how to snag a man and find 'true love,' the book sums up what dozens of diverse folks have learned the hard way over time. From life advice from people making open relationships work to people who've decided they're never going to have kids, this is advice that is helpful to anyone, in any type of relationship. Includes tips from Tristan Taormino, Arianne Cohen and Andi Zeisler.
Sarah Mirk is an editor for the national feminist magazine "Bitch," for which she writes on issues of race, class, and sexuality.

In addition to traditional reporting, Mirk also writes nonfiction comics ranging from personal stores of female Guantanamo detainees to Oregon History Comics, a series of small press comics about Oregon's past.
