‘The history of my sexuality is as follows: I have always been looking for someone to close all the doors and windows, someone who would say, okay, that’s enough now. More precisely, first I was into men and later into women, but really always into women…into so many women really-but I kept my eyes and another crucial body part tightly closed. Not that any of that actually matters.’ – excerpt The History of my Sexuality
The History of my Sexuality is the razor sharp and unconventional debut by Tobi Lakmaker, once deemed a muse and then a little later a lesbian fundamentalist. An essential book, more daring in its writing, than Frenkie de Jong plays football. About the genius that Tobi Lakmaker is, was or should have been.
