From the writer Rolling Stone deemed “part of an intellectual avant-garde of the purity brigades” and San Francisco magazine called “a keen observer of human idiosyncrasies” comes a memoir about the tension between serving God and having a love life.
Anna Broadway has a problem: she loves God, but she also wants to have sex. She’s willing to have it God’s way — with her husband — only he hasn’t quite arrived yet. In Sexless in the City, this twentysomething urbanite is discovering that the Harlequin romances she's read and the jazz standards she’s memorized are little help in her search for that lifelong love. With the cheek she became known for on her blog, Broadway writes about her youthful ambition to write bodice-rippers, her struggles with debt and loneliness, and the pleasures and perils of meeting men in singles bars and other urban outposts. From Phoenix to Berkeley, Singapore and New York, she navigates romantic entanglements with men like the Harvard Lickwit, Hippie the Groper and Ad Weasel. Meanwhile Broadway must decide if the God of her youth is really real and if she can trust him with her love life.
Sexless in the City offers a humorous, yet unflinching look at what it means to obey God in our sexuality, come singleness or marriage.
