Starting at fifteen, we had both been having sex with men for forty-five years.

He was a little conceited about these supposed special abilities, and that was how the story began. She agreed. Even without a visual description, my sense of her was vivid: her slender forearm and long hand, the outline of her cheek giving off a subtle glow as she leaned slightly forward, into his attention, her mind quickened by this odd and unexpected man.
And he would be leaning toward her, too. Quin was someone who imbibed people. They exchanged numbers. It was enough to feel the potential between them, stored away like a cell-phone video of something that had already happened.

And the year-old says she wouldn’t go through this painful process of reliving the past again. I had no idea how I would be affected. And so, you know, to be truthful, there was a point where I didn’t know whether I could get through the book, because it hurt so much.

Beginning with her “mostly untroubled” childhood in Springhill, N. Murray — she of the squeaky-clean, freshly scrubbed image — shares plenty of eyebrow-raising anecdotes, including the details of her years-long affair with Bill Langstroth, a television producer who was married with children when he and Murray began an affair while working together on CBC-TV’s “Singalong Jubilee. The relationship began during a trip to Charlottetown, when Murray and Langstroth smoked marijuana together and kissed.
Murray wrote that the early years of their affair were difficult. For years and years, they had to keep their relationship hidden while Langstroth remained married. That Murray had to be secretive about her relationship fuelled speculation about her own sexuality, she says, and might have contributed to the “legion of gay fans” she writes about. Writing about the affair, Murray said, was easy. It was ancient history.

A friend had suggested that she work with a man who took nude photos and sold them to magazines in Japan.
