    Book details


An honest and poignant look into the deeply intimate yet platonic relationship between a gay English teacher and his young female proté:gé:e—:each seeking connection and acceptance—:as reflected by the decade of letters they exchanged.

It was an improbable relationship from the start—:a high school English teacher, still in the closet, and his best student. From the confines—:and protection—:of his closet, Amy’:s teacher wrote these letters, letters that were read, cherished, answered, and then locked away for years. Now Amy looks back at the decade of intimate letters that preceded her teacher’:s untimely death, collects the shards left by their clumsy, sometimes violent attempts to unmask each other, and counts again the cost of knowing and being known. Every writer needs a room of his own, but for some people, at certain times, and in certain circumstances, the best you can do is a closet.

Timely and relevant, this is a love story of the most contemporary kind, a rare glimpse into an intimate relationship between teacher and student—:a relationship whose effects are still being felt decades later. It’:s raw and honest and moving, a poignant commentary on the values that unite us all.
