The author, an actor in movies and TV (including »Ally McBeal«), model, and gay rights advocate, writes that »playing the role of heterosexual while fantasizing about being a homosexual had been my reality since I was a child«. It was one she played into her 20s, when she was married to a man. Now, she's married to Ellen DeGeneres, whom she met in 2001 after recovering from anorexia and bulimia. De Rossi nicely chronicles the years inbetween, during which she starved herself to 80 pounds. She artfully draws the reader into the tension of a life lived in secrecy. Will anyone guess she is lesbian? When she nearly fainted, was anyone around to notice? It makes the reader comprehend the twisted logic of de Rossi's frantic daily pursuits, and grasp the enormity of her achievement in overcoming her problems.
