Novel in Process, 2021:
The Romantics

By Ann Starr

On a college campus in 1970–the Age of Aquarius–close friends Mamie and Max fall out when his homosexuality is revealed to her, forcing each to weigh their priorities: love, truthfulness, privacy–and each other.
A historical novel, The Romantics is set in a world when homosexuals were closeted and their female friends were “fag-hags;” when social pressures, even on liberal campuses, weighed heavily on homosexual boys and girls, victims of sexual assault, and the friends who kept their secrets.
