Number 1 in the Guardian 'Top 10 Books About Coming Out' (2019)

Broken Frontier Awards 2018 Nominee - "Best One-Shot" and "Best Newcomer"

"In this charming, funny comic, Crewes traces the moments she realised she might be gay, from her holy communion to her first date with a woman. She describes the “burst of life” she feels when she comes out once and for all – and the regret that it has taken her so long." - Kate Davies, Author of 'In At The Deep End'

“Eleanor Crewes totally blew me away. The art is evocative and the story is authentic and hilarious. As a gay woman I’m constantly looking for content that feels true to my own experiences, that helps me understand myself more - in this book, I found that.” - Tillie Walden, Author of 'Spinning' and 'On a Sunbeam'

"Navigating one’s own relation to the world has never been simple, but Crewes’ deftly drawn lines don’t divide her from the norm, they place her lovingly within its problematic embrace." - Jenny Robins, The Quietus

"a really poignant look at the fuzziness and confusions of queer life. It was beautiful" - Ruby Tandoh, Author of 'Eat Up!'

“Ellie Crewes' honesty should be applauded in quietly and succinctly challenging a social obsession with trying to fit people's sexual identities into restrictive categories.” - Nicola Streeten, Author of 'The Inking Woman' and 'Billy, Me & You'

“This fuller-length The Times I Knew I Was Gay surpasses expectations, with Crewes providing a coming-of-age style account of coming out that is witty, poignant and beautifully observed...Undoubtedly set to be one of the year’s most talked about UK small press offerings”- Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
