A sensation in Europe on publication: an effervescent account of life as a twenty-something in Amsterdam that charts the freedoms and complications of coming out and going it alone.

Meet Sofie. The history of her sexuality begins when she loses her virginity to Walter the recruitment consultant. So, naturally, she thought that things could only improve from there.

But she was wrong. It seems Sofie's been wrong about a lot of things. First, she thought she was into men: wrong.

Then she met Frida and thought she was set for life: wrong again. Turns out, facing up to everything she thought she knew about herself requires a lot of trial and error. Will Sofie ever be able to untangle the impossible knot of sex, love, loneliness, family relationships and grief that constitutes a life? Does it even matter?

The History of My Sexuality is a frank, funny, exuberant journey through the highs and lows of your 20s, and making peace with getting it wrong again and again...
