A unique combination of compelling narrative, educational fiction, and lesbian erotica, Minus One: A Twelve-Step Journey is the captivating story of Terry Manescu—a young lesbian—and her first year in Alcoholics Anonymous. Driven to AA by her abusive behavior, Terry initially resents the program and its members. At meetings, she is argumentative and foul-mouthed and often shows up wearing gay pride T-shirts. After a relapse and another episode of violence, she finally gets serious about recovery. With the help of a lesbian AA group, Terry begins to work the Twelve Steps and to address her sexual addiction. Will she be able to heal her relationships with family, lovers, and friends, and recover her self-esteem?
