An #ownvoices debut rom com – a bisexual My Big Fat Greek WeddingFrom new best friend to girl of her dreams . . .
When Nar’s boyfriend gets down on one knee and proposes to her a San Francisco bar, she realises it’s time to find someone who shares her idea of romance. Enter her mother who wants Nar to settle down with a nice Armenia boy. Armed with a spreadsheet of Facebook-stalked men, she convinces Nar to attend ‘Explore Armenia’, a month-long festival of events in the city.
But it’s not the parentally-approved playboy doctor or wealthy engineer who catches her eye – it’s Erebuni, a cool and intriguing young woman fully intouch with her heritage. Suddenly, with Erebuni as her guide, the events feel like far less of a chore, and much more of an adventure. Erebuni helps Nar see the beauty of their shared culture and makes her feel understood in a way she never has before.
But there’s one teeny problem: Nar’s not exactly out as bisexual. A funny, heartfelt and deeply relatable rom com about family, cultural identity, queer love, and the process of self-discovery that continues into adulthood as identities evolve, all in a fresh, humorous voice. Praise for Sorry, Bro:’As I read [Sorry, Bro], I kept cackling out loud, I sometimes couldn’t because I would be laughing so hard.
But underneath the humour is such an important story of love between two women and the journey to rediscovering Armenian culture and heritage.’ – Jesse Q. Sutanto, author of Dial A for Aunties’Sorry Bro explores bisexuality, culture, and self-discovery through moments that will make you laugh out loud. This new writer brings a fresh take on self-identity, with a story that will capture both your heart and sense of humour.’ – Diva Magazine’With this radiantly ravishing debut, Voskuni beautifully illustrates the courage it can take to be your own true self and risk everything for love.’ – Booklist-Starred Review
