Editorial Reviews

Whitney Scott
Nelson examines her much-publicized split with international tennis legend Martina Navratilova within the context of her pre-Martina past as a genteel Southern woman who married a genteel Southern womanizer; her development since the breakup, including the financial settlement with Martina and Nelson's romance and financial entanglements with Martina's previous ex, author Rita Mae Brown; and her newly found inner calm despite all the publicized personal upheaval. Many will flock to this chronicle, hoping to "see" the "true" Martina and the "true" Rita Mae. They may find Nelson rambling, chatty (she refers to men as "fellas" ), and ostensibly focused on the joys of nature and long-term friendship in the face of adversity but as strongly interested in money matters. To offset this obsession, she summarizes the causes she has addressed as a spokeswoman on such gay and lesbian issues as same-sex marriage, homophobia, and lesbian mothers.
