Publisher's Description

Anna Broadway’s “Sexless in the City” blog has become a popular Internet destination, attracting readers with its amusing tales of romantic misadventures and candid, far-from-prissy reports on the difficulties of trying to reconcile Christian beliefs with the mores and temptations of the modern world.

In SEXLESS IN THE CITY, Broadway offers a lighthearted, yet unflinching, look at the realities of life as a twentysomething urbanite. She writes about her youthful ambition of writing or editing bodice-rippers, struggles with debt and loneliness, the pleasures and perils of meeting men in singles bars, and other urban outposts, and about her friendships with women searching, as she is, for a good man to spend the rest of their lives with. Guided by her trust in God and the teachings of the Bible, Broadway navigates romantic entanglements with the Harvard Lickwit, Hippie the Groper, Ad Weasel, 5 Percent Man, and various others who wander in and out her life—but never into her bed.

As Broadway discovered, romance novels don’t quite prepare you for love in the real world. For Christian women looking for guidance through the land of contemporary romance, SEXLESS IN THE CITY is the ideal place to start.

Author Bio

ANNA BROADWAY, an editor and recovering romantiholic, has been writing the popular blog “Sexless in the City” for three years. She lives near San Francisco, California.

Publisher's Weekly

Broadway wants what many young Christian women want: a fulfilling partnership with a husband who shares her faith—and with whom she shares a certain zingy chemistry. But the young urban editor has found that real romance is a whole lot more complicated and painful than the courtships in the Harlequin novels she devoured as a teen. In this spicy and funny Gen-X memoir, Broadway details her own rocky romances, giving code names to her many crushes and paramours, including Poster Boy, Aryan Atheist, the Captain, Ad Weasel and Singapore Fling, among others. Youngish evangelical readers will recognize many of their own heartaches in these pages: the struggle to remain chaste when marriage seems distant; the pain of outgrowing a close-knit college Christian fellowship group; the plunge into the isolations of postcollegiate life and work. Although there have been a number of memoirs chronicling young adulthood and the “quarterlife crisis,” Broadway's account adds a candid faith journey to the usual fare. At times, the bloglike chapterlets mire down in excessive details and characters that don't wind up being important to her story. However, her engaging voice and wit will appeal to a wide readership.
