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'

"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, 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
