Summary
The New York Times–bestselling author's thoughtful and provocative memoir of changing identity, complex sexuality, and enduring family relationships. At age thirty-six, while serving on a jury, author Molly Wizenberg found herself drawn to a female attorney she hardly knew. Married to a man for nearly a decade and mother to a toddler, Wizenberg tried to return to her life as she knew it, but something inside her had changed irrevocably. Instead, she would discover that the trajectory of our lives is rarely as smooth or as logical as we'd like to believe. Like many of us, Wizenberg had long understood sexual orientation as a stable part of ourselves: we're "born this way." Suddenly she realized that her story was more complicated. Who was she if something at her very core could change so radically? Wizenberg forges a new path: through separation and divorce, coming out to family and friends, learning to co-parent a young child, and realizing a new vision of love. The Fixed Stars is a "spirited, terrifyingly courageous" memoir exploring timely and timeless questions about desire, identity, and the limits and possibilities of family (Booklist)
