Publisher's Summary

A hilarious and whip-smart collection of essays, offering an intimate look at bisexuality, gender, and, of course, sex. Perfect for fans of Lindy West, Samantha Irby, and Rebecca Solnit - and anyone who wants, and deserves, to be seen.

If Jen Winston knows one thing for sure, it’s that she’s bisexual. Or wait - maybe she isn’t? Actually, she definitely is. Unless...she’s not? 

Jen’s provocative, laugh-out-loud debut takes us inside her journey of self-discovery, leading us through stories of a childhood “girl crush”, an onerous quest to have a threesome, and an enduring fear of being bad at sex. Greedy follows Jen’s attempts to make sense of herself as she explores the role of the male gaze, what it means to be “queer enough”, and how to overcome bi stereotypes when you’re the posterchild for all of them: greedy, slutty, and constantly confused. 

With her clever voice and clear-eyed insight, Jen draws on personal experiences with sexism and biphobia to understand how we all can and must do better. She sheds light on the reasons women, queer people, and other marginalized groups tend to make ourselves smaller, provoking the question: What would happen if we suddenly stopped?​​ 

Greedy shows us that being bisexual is about so much more than who you’re sleeping with - it’s about finding stability in a state of flux and defining yourself on your own terms. This book inspires us to rethink the world as we know it, reminding us that Greedy was a superpower all along.

A beautiful read for anyone under the Bi+ Umbrella

The best review I can give is that Greedy has quickly become one of my favorite books. I devoured it as quickly as I could. Rarely have I ever felt so seen and understood as I did with this book. Keep the tissues ready if you’re like me, a big sensitive bisexual non binary baby.

I'm so glad this exists.

This is the kind of book we need more of in the bisexual community. We need our stories out there.

I don’t feel all bi-myself anymore 🤍

As a bisexual navigating life in a very straight society, it felt so good to find this book and find bits of myself in it.

Jen is an author and person whom I truly felt I could relate to, so I was excited to give this a listen after having read the book. The way I laughed and cried as she shared anecdotes of scenarios I swear you just had to be bi to understand. My heart swooned throughout, having never felt so seen before. The way we are taken on this self discovery journey along with them navigating bisexuality and life is and so laudable to me. It’s so damn important to share queer stories, and this is def one of my faves. With that being said, it quickly became a book/audio that I enjoy revisiting.

The audio really was the icing on the cake. It almost felt like I was chillin with Jen on the phone with way you do with your homegirl. I was able to follow along with my hard copy which was great.

Incredible

Read this. A kick in the face, but in a good way. A hug so tight you realize you deserve to break from the binary.

Amazing read

As a bisexual person this book was massively affirming. The struggle with feeling valid enough to take up space in the lgbtqia+ community is something I’ve dealt with through the years, & hearing it discussed and dismantled was refreshing. There isn’t enough bi visibility out there, there isn’t enough content that doesn’t reinforces harmful stereotypes.
But beyond covering the topic of bisexuality, the author also addresses sexual assault, feminism, race issues/anti racism, gender, & so much more. Not only that they check their privilege through out, which is refreshing in and of itself.

Irritating and rather boring

Just what the title says. Infused with too much nauseating queer theory and overtired jokes about the awfulness of cishet men, and overall seems somewhat shallow. I also suspect it may not reflect the experiences of many bisexual women (certainly didn't mine), although I can't really fault the author for that because I recognise that she's telling *her* story. Found myself tuning out a lot though, because it just wasn't all that interesting.

Thank you Jen

I had no idea how much of my bi confusion was a part of a shared experience with others. Thank you for vocalizing something I’ve struggled with for decades. ❤️
