This week, I talked with K.B. Draper about her new book The U-haul Diary, which is an extremely entertaining and relatable lesbian dating memoir. The title comes from the old U-Haul lesbian joke that lesbians tend to move in together on the second date. The U-haul Diary is a comedic view of the women that Draper dated who moved in and out of her life and her house. A woman’s name serves as the title for each of the chapters, and they come from the relationships she had with one serial lover thrown in, that returned causing more heartbreak and havoc in her life.
This book isn’t an inspiring tale of the triumphant power of love or another coming out story, but instead, it’s an intelligent, honest and hilarious read about the lesbian dating scene.
