Otto ga otoko ni koi o shita [My husband fell in love with a man]

Tokyo: Shueisha, 2009. 186p., very good in wraps; manga version of Beathorice's book by the same title. Text in Japanese.

Based on Beathorice's blog about being a mother of two who discovers that her husband of seven years has a male lover, a younger co-worker (who is part time at husband's company). The comic traces her confrontation with her husband and the young man and how she learns about homosexuality in the process, how she comes to terms with her situation and figures out with her husband (and the young man) how they are going to proceed. In the process, she becomes interested in and sympathetic to the young man, with whom she also corresponds and meets regularly.
