This is a funny short story about a former model named Szuszu who wastes her days drinking scotch. After her best friend places a silly personal ad in the paper, she meets Naomi. She is convinced that Naomi looks just like she did when she was young. The two begin a relationship and Szuszu starts really thinking about her past and why she is the way that she is.
Over the course of their six month relationship, both women become more comfortable with their bodies and who they are as people. Then Szuszu reveals that she has a problem.
When her friend returns, she immediately attacks Naomi because she doesn’t like the way she looks and she doesn’t like the changes that she sees in Szuszu. I like that Naomi stood up for herself, Szuszu and their relationship. The ending was nice. I really like the underlying theme of self acceptance.
I recommend this to fans of lesbian short stories.
