Femme Confidential is a darkly comic examination of sexual freedom and finding yourself, your tribe, and the not-so-perfect girlfriend. Set in a gentrifying Toronto neighbourhood, the novel is told from the point of view of three lesbians. Liberty, the daughter of earnest Quaker hippies, pivots between being good, bad, and awkward as she searches for passion. Veronika, a beautiful and charismatic Hungarian whose primary dating criteria is hotness, embraces her outer mean girl--until she has a baby. Dana, a transsexual lesbian, struggles to find her place in a dyke community where masculinity, something she wants to irradiate from her being, is embraced by the femmes she desires.

Nairne Holtz is a Hamilton-based fiction writer whose first novel, The Skin Beneath (Insomniac, 2007), won the Alice B. Lesbian Debut Fiction Award and was a finalist for Quebec's McAuslan First Book Prize. This One's Going to Last Forever, Nairne's second book, is a finalist for the 2009 Lambda Literary Award for lesbian fiction.
