Author(s): Amy Bodossian
Amy's intimate, personal, poignant and sometimes humourous reflections on love, lust, loneliness and letting go are unusually touching, sometimes confronting, and deeply relatable. Come with this critically acclaimed cabaret star on her journey through one of the most exhilarating, painful, and rewarding facets of the human experience. From high speed sex on the highway to domestic bliss. From kissing the dizzying heights of new love to skinning her knees on the concrete of rejection. From masturbating in the garden to f**king amongst her childhood toys, to the agony of letting go on the beach at midnight. From the mundane ache of longing at the 24 hour supermarket, to the thrill of the first date, to the comfort of a deep and lasting relationship. Amy plunges into the treacherous yet expansive oceans of romantic love with a heart that will not harden. A heart that will always be Wide Open.
